Anonymous Intelligence (without direct police involvement)

If you decide you just want to give details of the incident to someone; the SARC can take these details and pass them on anonymously to the police. This may help with future prevention of attacks.

Report

Deciding whether or not to report a rape to the police is a very difficult decision and unfortunately one which needs to be made as soon as possible. There are many points of view about whether or not to report – whichever decision you make, it is up to you and no one should make you feel guilty.
