Have you been
a victim of sexual assault
or rape?

Our SAFE worker can support you
and it is a free and confidential service.

Rape and sexual assault
happen far more often
than statistics indicate.

And it happens in all communities
and cultures.

It is irrelevant what you were wearing,
how much you had to drink or whether you were
in your own home or out for the evening
– you did not ask to be raped or sexually assaulted.

The blame is entirely
the perpetrators.

You do NOT

to the police

have to report

to access our services

To talk in confidence call

0333 323 1543
