Our services include:

  • Crisis Worker support  - The crisis worker is your named worker who will support you from when you arrive at the SARC until you leave.
  • Forensic Medical Examination – This medical collects evidence when you have been raped or sexually assaulted.  This medical also makes sure that your emotional health and well-being is discussed and any other needs are addressed to ensure you are safe and well.
  • Access to Emergency Contraception – The centre can provide a range of emergency contraception to prevent unplanned pregnancy.
  • Sexual Health Screening for Sexually Transmitted Infections – an aftercare form will be completed with you to try and address any risk of sexually transmitted infection.  Treatment will be provided to you if needed.
  • Referrals to agencies for support with counselling – when you leave Grange Park as part of your aftercare services will be contacted with your agreement in order that there is ongoing care and support to help you in your recovery.

 

Is the service confidential?

Yes, however there may be times when other agencies need to be informed e.g. if you, another adult or child are at risk of harm.

 

Police Involvement

It is your choice whether or not to involve the Police.  If you wish to make a report contact the police on 101 or 999.  If you do not feel safe please dial 999 immediately.

 

Self-Referral

If you or someone you know has been raped or sexually assaulted it is important that you get the help you need.  You can pick up the phone and speak to a member of our team at Grange Park.   If you don't want to or are unsure whether you want to report an assault to Police, the team can see you without police involvement and book you an appointment as a self-referral.  You can access this service by contacting Grange Park direct.  Always ring the team at Grange Park first to talk through your options and arrange an appointment.  You must be over 16 to self-refer to this service.
