About the Sexual Assault Center
At the Sexual Assault Center, a team of doctors, nurses, police officers, psychologists, social workers and sex therapists work together to provide specialist care to victims of sexual assault and rape.
Ideally, we like to provide professional help within seven days after the event, as this time frame reduces the chances of medical and psychological issues considerably. The police also have a much better chance of finding the perpetrator if forensic investigations are carried out within a week of the event.
How we work
When you arrive at the Sexual Assault Center, you will be met by a (forensic) nurse, who will stay with you for the duration of your visit. We will make sure that you needn’t repeat your story more than necessary. A team of doctors, nurses, police officers, psychologists, social workers and sex therapists will work together to give you the best care. Everything you discuss with us is treated confidentially.
If you have any doubts, call us! Call our national helpline now 0800-0188 or click on the region closest to you to find the relevant telephone number.
