Our Helpline will be open for extra hours and we are taking referrals into all our services. Face-to-Face support and assessments are now taking place over the telephone or online. We are currently looking into how we can re-start providing support in person.
We understand that this is a very anxious time for everyone but we will make every effort to ensure that our support continues.

Have you recently suffered sexual assault?
If you have just been raped or sexually assaulted, you may feel in shock and unsure of what to do. Here are some steps you can take:
- Ensure safety of yourself and any children
- Try to keep warm as you might be in shock
- See if a friend or someone you trust can be with you
Are you unsure whether to report or not?
There is no time limit on reporting an incident, many people decide to report many weeks, months or years after an incident so try not to destroy any evidence that could help if you change your mind. You may feel unsure whether to report the incident to the Police or not and this can a very difficult decision for many people to make. The earlier you tell the Police about an attack, the more likely it is that they will be able to investigate the incident effectively and, potentially, make a prosecution. Forensic evidence is also best obtained within 7 days of an incident occurring. Nottinghamshire Police have a designated Rape Unit with officers who are specially trained in working with incidents of sexual violence. However, you do not have to tell the Police if you don’t want to.
