Support for Sexual Violence victims during COVID-19
Main article content
During the coronavirus enforced lockdown and self-isolation requirements, our homes should be the safest place for everyone to be. But for some people it means they are forced to spend all of their time indoors with the person who poses the biggest risk to them.
Juniper Lodge, a Sexual Assault Referral Centre (SARC) remains open with some slight changes to the service to keep you and the team safe at this time. They offer non-judgemental advice and services to anyone who is the victim of sexual abuse or rape.
Millie Gant, SARC Manager said: “The office hours are now 9am until 3pm Monday to Saturday. Outside of these times, please call and leave a message and we will contact you as soon as we can. We work on-call to provide 24/7 support and access to specialist services.
“We want you to know you are not to blame no matter what the circumstances.
“Contact us via 0116 273 3330 or complete the online form on our website to discuss your options, arrange support following a sexual assault, which may include access to a forensic medical examination if necessary.”
