I have been sexually assaulted

Our team understand the devastating impact rape and sexual assault can have on your life. You may be experiencing feelings that you have never felt before and the assault may leave you feeling vulnerable, frightened and alone. These are completely normal feelings but you may want to share these feelings with someone who understands.

Report the Crime

If you have been sexually assaulted more than 10 days ago

It is never too late to seek the support you need following a rape or sexual assault. Depending on what happened and how long ago, it is possible you may still be offered a Forensic Medical examination.  If your assault did not take place recently then we may not be able to find forensic evidence.

No matter how long ago it happened, we can still provide advice and information on medical, emotional and practical support. This support may be through our Crisis Workers or Independent Sexual Violence Advisors (ISVA).
