The Sexual Assault Referral Network (SARN) in Tayside has extended its opening hours to support people who have been raped or sexually assaulted.
The SARN offers a self-referral service to people who have been raped or sexually assaulted but do not want to report it to the Police. To provide support, the network has extended its opening hours and has now set up a dedicated phoneline which is available every day until midnight.
The dedicated phone line - 0300 365 2001 - allows people to directly contact a Rape Crisis Helpline worker who will offer initial support and contact to the Forensic and Custody Nurses in Tayside.
Callers are offered support, access to health services, such as emergency contraception and screening for sexually transmitted infections. They are also offered the option of the collection and storage of forensic evidence, should they decide to report to the police at a later time.
NHS Tayside, Womens Rape And Sexual Assault Centre (WRASAC) Dundee & Angus, Rape and Sexual Abuse Centre Perth & Kinross (RASAC), Rape Crisis Scotland and Police Scotland have collaborated to increase services and raise the profile and awareness of the SARN self-referral service.
