SARCs offer a comprehensive service for people who have experienced sexual assault, violence, and abuse. Our clients can access our SARCs via the Police and other professionals, as well as via the self-referral pathway (booking an appointment at the SARC, without Police involvement).
At our SARCs, individuals will be offered support and guidance, a medical assessment/treatment, a forensic examination, and the opportunity of aftercare referrals for support services. Clients will be offered these services based on their individual needs, and can choose to use as much or as little of our service as they wish.
Our SARC teams will usually be able to offer you support, healthcare, and aftercare advice if:
You are in Kent and Medway, Surrey, or Sussex
You have experienced sexual assault/violence/abuse.
We should also be able to offer you a forensic medical examination if:
The incident(s) has occurred in the past 7 days.

Even if you don't know if we are the right service for you, please feel free to get in touch, and we can either offer you an appointment or point you in the right direction of an appropriate service.
