Hope House SARC offers information and advice to friends and family if someone you care about has been affected by sexual assault.
It can be really hard for someone to talk about being raped or sexually assaulted and how you respond to them can make a real difference. It is important to be respectful and non-judgemental when supporting your friend or family member. Here are some things to consider
- Believe them
- Listen to them
- Ask how you can help
We also recognise that it can be hard for you, the person supporting your friend or loved one, and here at Hope House SARC we can offer advice on other support services for you should you need this.
