We are Sexual Assault Referral Centre…
We are Lincolnshire’s Sexual Assault Referral Centre also known as Spring Lodge. The service is jointly funded by NHS England and Lincolnshire Police and hosted as part of Lincolnshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust (LPFT) Services. LPFT is the Mental Health Trust for the county.
We are based in the uphill area of Lincoln, a few miles out of the city centre with some free parking and close to public transport routes.
Spring Lodge is here to help any adult who has been raped, sexually assaulted or sexually abused at any point in their lives.
Established in March 2010 we have been working to help people for a number of years and have received excellent feedback for our services. We cover the whole of Lincolnshire and there are equivalent centres like ourselves in neighbouring counties too.
All of our staff are highly skilled and specialist trained to work with survivors of rape, sexual assault and sexual abuse.
We aim to provide a non-judgemental service regardless of gender, race, religion or belief, age, disability, sexuality, transgender or any other characteristic ‘protected or unprotected’ under equality law. However we are not commissioned to work with children.
For children and adolescents under 18 the Child ISVA service is now provided by the Castle Project at Victim Support in Lincoln. Some further information on this service can be found on Victim Support’s website – Victim Support – Lincolnshire. They can also be contacted on 07787 002970 or 07703 183338.
