Hackenthorpe Lodge - the South Yorkshire Sexual Assault Referral Centre (SARC). SARCs are a safe place where victims attend, with or without the need for Police assistance. It enables victims to obtain advice, have forensic samples taken, receive medical care and be offered ongoing support. SARC services are available to anyone of any age. People who have experienced rape or sexual assault but do not want police involvement may “self refer” to the service”

The aim of the Stop it Now! UK and Ireland campaign, including the Helpline, is to equip adults to protect children from sexual abuse. If as a society we share this aim, we must begin to talk about the issues. With the right tools, everyone can make a real difference to the safety of children.
This handbook has been written to provide information and support to people who have experienced sexual violence, as well as to their families, friends and the organisations that support them.
Healthy relationships are all about respecting each other. You should feel loved, safe and free to be yourself. Relationships can be confusing and it can be difficult to understand what is and isn’t normal behaviour. Find out more about healthy relationships, consent and abuse here.
National Free Helpline is: 0808 802 9999 and is open every day of the year between 12 – 2.30pm and 7 – 9.30pm.

Resources for Supporting Others
A downloadable leaflet from SRASAC with some information and suggestions for anyone supporting a survivor.
If you are supporting someone who has been raped or abused, you may well need support yourself. SRASAC is able to support you in this. We recognise how important the support of partners, friends, relatives and carers can be for someone to feel back in control and safe. It is important for people to be listened to and believed. Survivors may have been recently attacked or dealing with experiences that happened many years ago, sometimes in their childhood.
Mosac is a voluntary organisation supporting all non-abusing parents and carers whose children have been sexually abused. They provide various types of support services and information for parents, carers and professionals dealing with child sexual abuse.
