Making a referral

If you’re 18 or over and have experienced sexual violence within the last 7 to 10 days you can have a forensic medical examination at our Sexual Assault Referral Centre.

You can either report to the police who will bring you to the SARC or you can self-refer. You do not need to report a crime to receive our support or access our services. We want to give you back your control, and whatever you decide we will support you every step of the way.

If you are not sure whether to go to the police, we can store evidence for up to 2 years giving you the breathing space to recover and access additional support. There is also an option to anonymously provide the police with information regarding the crime.

Our Advice line is open 24/7 for immediate support after an incident of sexual violence. One of our team will discuss options with you and take your self-referral over the phone.
