However a person reacts to rape or sexual assault, whether they feel numb or angry or scared, or all three at once – there is no “right” way to react or to deal with the trauma. We will support you of whether or not the abuse is recent or historic. We will support you whether or not you decide to report to the Police. We can help support you while you consider issues surrounding pregnancy, STI’s, visits to GP’s etc.
Our service is free and confidential and you can remain anonymous if you wish
