A Sexual Assault Referral Centre (SARC) is a place you can go after a rape or sexual assault to get confidential medical, practical and emotional support from specialist doctors, nurses and support workers.
We can refer you to a SARC or you can refer yourself without involving us at all. If you prefer, you can ask staff at a SARC to report what happened to you to the police on your behalf.
