Sexual Assault Referral Network (SARN)

The decision to report to the Police immediately after a rape may feel overwhelming. RASAC P&K can directly support survivors aged 16+ 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 anonymously 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.

If you would like to contact us about SARN and it is not during offices hours you can contact the dedicated phone line 6pm - 12 midnight - 0300 365 2001 where Rape Crisis Workers will offer initial support and contact to the Forensic and Custody Nurses in Tayside.

You can contact the Sexual Assault Referral Network Monday to Friday 9am to 4.30pm on 0300 365 2001
