MSAS Outreach Workers engage with individuals, agencies, and organisations, to raise awareness of SARC (Sexual Assault Referral Centre) services across Kent, Surrey, and Sussex and to help increase male engagement/referrals.
The SARCs that our MSAS Outreach Workers currently support are:
Click on a SARC name (above) to visit their individual website. If you would like to speak to a Male Outreach worker, please contact your local SARC and they will help to put you in touch with an available team member. The SARCs in these areas offer a comprehensive service for for men and boys (Kent/Surrey = all ages, Sussex= +13), who have experienced sexual violence or sexual abuse. Individuals can access their local SARC via the Police and other professionals, as well as via the self-referral pathway (booking an appointment at the SARC, without police involvement).
When visiting a SARC, individuals will be offered support and guidance, a medical assessment/treatment, a forensic examination, and the opportunity of aftercare referrals for support services. Attendees will be offered these services based on their individual needs, and can choose to use as much or as little of the service as they wish.
