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.

The most
important thing to
remember is that it
was NOT your fault.

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.

To talk in confidence call

0333 323 1543

You do NOT have to report to the police
to access our services.

Christmas can be a very difficult time for some families. Children who come into our safehouses often have to leave home with nothing.
