How We Can Help
If you’ve experienced rape or sexual abuse it may be hard to talk to your close friends or family.
We provide free, safe, professional support and information for women and girls over 13 who have experienced any form of sexual violence at any time in their lives. This means that we support women and girls who have experienced sexual violence recently and/or in the past, this includes childhood sexual abuse.
We believe that you should decide what the right kind of support is for you, this could be a combination of our services.
