I'm not sure what happened
It can be hard to understand what happened or know whether what you experienced was sexual abuse, rape or another form of sexual violence. We're here for you with information and support.
Many people who have been raped, sexually abused or sexually assaulted feel confused about what has happened to them. If something sexual has been done to you without your consent, it’s not your fault and you’re not alone.
In law, we give sexual consent when we agree by choice, and have the freedom and capacity to make that choice.
This means that if someone is scared, being threatened or bullied into sex, drunk, under the influence of drugs or asleep, for example, they can't give their consent.
If you think you might have been raped, sexually abused or sexually assaulted, even if you're not sure, we're here for you.
You can also find information about your local Rape Crisis Centre and how they can help you.
If you want to report to the police, you still can but it's completely up to you; no-one else should tell you what to do.
