WHAT IS SEXUAL VIOLENCE?
Sexual violence means any form of unwanted sexual touch or activity, and can include rape, child sexual abuse or exploitation, sexual assault, female genital cutting, trafficking; abuse linked to faith or belief; and image-based abuse (commonly known as ‘revenge pornography’).
SELF HELP RESOURCES
Here at SRC we have multiple services which can support you, but here are some self-help guides if you are look for informal support.
SRC can only offer support to those over the age of 14. If you are under 14, these resources may be useful.
REPORTING TO THE POLICE
If you have recently been raped or abused, the first important step afterwards is to make sure you are somewhere you feel safe.
If you are in immediate danger or are in danger of harming yourself, please call 999.
If you require additional support, then please find some useful contacts that you can reach out to.
MEN AND BOYS
Suffolk Rape Crisis recognises that the impacts of sexual violence are no less devastating for men and boys than for women and girls. We believe that all survivors of sexual violence deserve specialist support.
We're excited to announce that for next week's #BiscuitsandBrew we will be joined by Nikki Luke, the UK Parliament's Outreach Officer in the East of England, for a workshop on ways we can get our voices heard in Parliament!
