This handbook has been written to provide information and support to people who have experienced sexual violence, as well as to their families, friends and the organisations that support them.
If you are supporting someone who has been raped or abused, you may well need support yourself. SRASAC is able to support you in this. We recognise how important the support of partners, friends, relatives and carers can be for someone to feel back in control and safe. It is important for people to be listened to and believed. Survivors may have been recently attacked or dealing with experiences that happened many years ago, sometimes in their childhood.
