Get urgent help...

REMEMBER, IT’S NOT YOUR FAULT.

Go to a place that feels safe. If you can, reach out to a trusted friend. You could ask them to watch this video so they understand how to best support you. If it’s just happened, be aware you might still be in shock, so keep warm.

IF YOU NEED URGENT MEDICAL ATTENTION

Call 999 and ask for an ambulance to take you straight to your nearest Accident & Emergency Department.

CONSIDER VISITING A

SEXUAL ASSAULT REFERRAL CENTRE

A SARC (Sexual Assault Referral Centre) is somewhere where you can have a forensic medical examination, as well as tests for sexually transmitted infections and pregnancy. The SARC should not pressure you into reporting to the police and they can store the results of the forensic examination (or evidence) until you make up your mind whether to report to the police or not. If you’re considering going to the police, this video may help you make an informed decision.

SARCs have specially trained professionals who can give you medical help and advice. They can also help and support you through your immediate trauma.

You can find your nearest SARC by calling the NHS 111 non-emergency service, speaking to your GP or the Accident & Emergency (A&E) department of your local hospital, or by visiting the NHS Choices website.

OR A SEXUAL HEALTH CLINIC

If you don’t want to go to a SARC itself, you could decide to visit your local sexual health clinic and get tested for sexually transmitted infections so you can be treated if necessary. To find your nearest sexual health clinic, you can visit this page on the NHS website.

I am pleased to be working in cooperation with HIV After Attack, a charity that provides free, confidential and at home HIV testing for people unsure of their status after an attack. You are not alone. A HIV+ diagnosis does not mean you cannot live a whole and fulfilling life, in fact one of their founders is HIV+ and explains his experience on their website. Further support, and information on the availability of tests can be found on the website and facebook page.

SILENCE HURTS: TALK HARD

Silence hurts. It eats us from the inside. It traps us, making sure we feel isolated and alone. 

In talking, there is a taking back of control. In talking we find that we are not alone, that there are others, that others have healed, that healing is possible, that there is hope. In talking we find community.

In talking there is power. Talk hard.
