Sexual violence

Sexual violence is defined as any unwanted sexual act or activity, including rape and sexual assault. It includes rape within marriages and relationships, forced marriage and sexual exploitation.

If you are a victim of sexual assault, however recent, we are here to support you. Whether you experienced an incident recently or historically, we're here to support you in your recovery.

Sexual violence can happen to anyone regardless of age, gender, race, sexual orientation, religion, class, or background. It can be perpetrated by a complete stranger, or by someone known or in a position of trust.

Anyone can be a victim of sexual assault. But no-one ever deserves or asks for it to happen.

Everyone is affected differently by otherís behaviour. We may feel differently about these issues but itís important to remember where to draw the line and when something can be considered a serious offence.
