SARCs – Sexual Assault Referral Centres

A Sexual Assault Referral Centre (sometimes referred to as a “SARC”) provides services to victims/survivors of rape or sexual assault regardless of whether the survivor/victim chooses to reports the offence to the police or not.

Sexual Assault Referral Centres are designed to be comfortable and multi-functional, providing private space for interviews and examinations, and some may also offer counselling services.  “SARC”s have specialist staff that are trained to help you make informed decisions about what you want to do next.
