We offer medical care, emotional and psychological support and practical help to anyone who has been raped or sexually assaulted, regardless of gender, sexual orientation or ethnicity.
Our crisis workers are there for you. A member of our Crisis Team is on hand to support any survivor of sexual assault attending Hope House SARC. They will be the first person you meet and understand that you have been through a major trauma and personal crisis.
All of our crisis workers are trained to listen to any concerns you may have, answer any questions and provide you with information both at the SARC and for you to take away with you. They will give you time to absorb and reflect on information you are given so that you can be sure you understand it and can make informed choices about your care.
Our team of crisis workers are also contactable 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year, on 0300 421 8400.
Depending on when the sexual assault took place, we can offer a forensic medical examination to collect evidence. This will be carried out by a specially trained doctor or nurse.
If you are unsure or not ready to report the assault to the police, forensic evidence can still be collected and stored by the SARC for up to two years.
