What to expect if you get in touch

We know that accessing support for sexual violence, abuse or harassment can feel like a big step – but we are here for you.

Find out more about what to expect below.

Rape Crisis staff and volunteers will always listen to you, believe you and support you.

If you contact our 24/7 Rape & Sexual Abuse Support Line or one of our member centres, you can go at your own pace and you don’t have to talk about anything that makes you feel uncomfortable.

We will never judge you or put pressure on you – and what you decide to do next is completely up to you (if anything).
