Gloucestershire has a number of organisations to support victims
SARC (Sexual Assault Referral Centre)
At Hope House SARC, our focus is firmly on the person who has undergone a traumatic event in their lives. The emphasis is on caring for that person and providing access to medical care, emotional and psychological support in a confidential environment. All our clients are treated with respect, dignity and compassion. We understand that it is a sensitive time and we realise how hard it can be to speak out.
The entire service is free and confidential and you do not have to commit to anything, you can visit us or make contact for advice only. There is no pressure to report to the police but staff are able to help you with this if you request it.
