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.
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”
