List of Services Available

You will be offered a health check and medication whether you decide to have a forensic examination or not. A forensic examination is a type of medical examination that is carried out to collect evidence after a rape or sexual assault.
We will also look after your psychological needs and a psychological support worker may be present if you wish.
If you need referral to any other services we can arrange this.

Before this website came along, we weren’t sure what services were available locally and how to access them. It’s great to now see them all listed in one place with lots of useful information and contact details.
