The decision to report to the Police immediately after a rape may feel overwhelming. RASAC P&K can directly support survivors within Perth and Kinross to access the Sexual Assault Referral Network (SARN).
SARN helps facilitate access to a forensic medical examination without having to report to the Police. This can take place up to 7 days after an assault has taken place. The evidence that is gathered is then stored and can be accessed at a future date if a decision to report is made.
If you want to know more about SARN please contact us. A support worker will speak to you and talk you through the process.
