This information pack is for women and men (over 16) who have been raped or sexually assaulted.

If you are under 16 or the parent/carer of a young person under 16, section 4 gives a list of agencies you can contact for information and support.

It has been put together using the questions which people who have been raped and sexually assaulted often ask. It gives information about:

  • How rape or sexual assault might affect you
  • How to look after your health if you are sexually assaulted
  • How the legal process works if you report the assault
  • Where to get support or more information
