"Have you just been raped or sexually assaulted?

Imediate Steps

First thing to do is make sure you are in a safe place, where you are able to remain calm as you are more than likely going to still be  in traumatic shock.

You are not alone!

Understand that this is not your fault, nothing you did gave anyone the right to do this. The fault lies entirely with the person who raped or sexually assaulted you. Talk to someone for support. This could be our Helpline, other organisation helplines or a friend or family member who you can trust to support you. Ideally this person will come with you if you decide to do any of the following.

Sexual Assault Referral Centre (SARC)

SARC’s speciallist medical and forensic services is for anyone who has been raped or sexually assaulted. They aim to be one to one providing medical care and forensic examination following the sexual violence. Most SARCs are able to offer medical services to anyone including those who do not wish to report the assault to the Police. However, forensic evidence will be there should you change your mind. Medical care is free of charge and provided for anyone. In order to preserve any evidence that may be present it is vital that help from the SARC is accessed as immediately as possible after an assault.

The Peterborough SARC number is 0845 089 6262

If you decide to come into the SARC

Do not wash
Do not brush your teeth
Do not have a cigarette
Do not eat or drink
Do not change your clothes (Or put them safely in a plastic bag)
Try not to go to the toilet
Do not clear up anything from the area of the incident
Don’t worry if you have already done some of these things. Its quite possible that there is still evidence to collect as well as injuries that can be documented."

"PRCCG is committed to supporting and empowering female survivors of rape and sexual abuse. Achieved by confidential helpline, face2face support & email support"

from their website
"Peterborough Rape Crisis Care Group was established in 1983 in response to a need amongst women for a safe, confidential, non-judgemental support service.

The sexual violence may have occurred recently or many years in the past and could have involved a stranger, relative or someone known to you.

All our volunteers come from a wide variety of backgrounds and all have been trained to help women survivors who have suffered any form of sexual abuse.

Mission Statement

Peterborough Rape Crisis Care Group is committed to supporting and empowering female survivors of rape and sexual abuse, regardless of race, ethnicity, sexuality, age and other discriminatory factors respecting individual lifestyles through the provision of a confidential telephone help line, a face to face support service and other appropriate support mechanisms.

We are committed to raising public awareness of issues surrounding sexual violence."

"Stay Calm
Rape Trauma Syndrome is a recognised crisis response to rape or sexual assault and is a term sometimes used to help explain the impact of sexual violence. Immediately after being assaulted you may feel shock, denial, disbelief and a determination to carry on as if nothing has happened. In the longer term you may experience insomnia, nightmares or flashbacks. However, there is no right or wrong way to react to sexual violence. You may wonder if you should or should not be feeling a certain way, or how long you should feel it for, or whether you should be ‘over it by now’.

Whatever you do feel is valid and right in respect to how you’re feeling. Each woman responds in her own way. If you can talk about your feelings with other women it can help you to understand your responses and can start to help you to regain some control over your own life."
