#BreakTheSilence Film Campaign

1 Sep 2018

It takes strength to talk about rape. If you’re a survivor you are not alone, and you deserve support.

Rape Crisis South London has launched #BreakTheSilence, a series of films for young survivors aimed at explaining the police, the court system and the Independent Sexual Violence Advocate (ISVA) support available from Rape Crisis.

Our National Rape Crisis Helpline has been helping women and girls break the silence for over 30 years. Every week we receive over 1,000 calls from survivors. To help us continue this work, please make a donation here.

Rape Crisis South London present the first of a series of four short films following a survivor of rape called Leila, who chooses to access support.
This is the second part of a series of films showing a young survivor of rape accessing support.
This is the third part in a series of short films following Leila, a survivor of rape, as she goes through the process of reporting what happened to her to the police.
This is the final part of the series following Leila, a survivor of rape through her experience of the criminal justice system, with the support of an Independent Sexual Violence Advocate. Here we see her about 12 months later when she goes to court to give evidence.
