CARA works with a range of other agencies, including Essex Police, the Sexual Assault Referral Centre (SARC), Social Services, the NHS and other voluntary sector organisations.
Since early 2016, CARA has been part of Essex Rape Crisis Partnership (ERCP), working closely with South Essex Rape and Incest Crisis Centre (SERICC) and Southend-on-Sea Rape Crisis (SOS Rape Crisis).
Since April 2016, ERCP has delivered the Essex Police and Crime Commissioner Contracts for the provision of Independent Sexual Violence Adviser (ISVA) and associated community based services for victims of sexual violence across Essex. The contract has been awarded until March 2019. ERCP is also working together on a three year pilot project, “First Contact Navigators”, funded by the Big Lottery Fund’s Women and Girls Initiative.
