Justice advocacy

We are able to offer limited face to face services for court support please contact us to discuss. We are also still offering support including advocacy by ZOOM, phone, text or email. Please see our contact page for more information on how to get in touch.

We can offer support to those who are considering or want to report their incident to the Police. We understand that reporting can be difficult and can offer information about the process as well as contacting Police on your behalf if this is something you would like. If you have already reported and want some support with court and the justice process we can do that too. If you were sexually abused/raped/assaulted yesterday or 40 years ago it makes no difference, and police will take your report seriously.

I was so overwhelmed and felt like I had no control after I reported to the Police. But RASAC helped me understand the process, my choices and also keep informed of what was happening in the case. That helped so much and although was a very stressful time it made it easier.

There are many reasons why someone decides to report and many reasons why they don’t. Deciding to report is an individual choice and we will respect whatever decision you have made. We will not contact the Police without your consent (unless a child or vulnerable adult is at risk).

We can provide you with the information you need to make your decisions. We will respect and support your decision to report or not to report. If you chose to report:

  • We can contact the police on your behalf
  • The police can interview you in our premises (or other you feel safe in) with a member of our staff present to support you if you wish.
  • We can accompany you to the forensics examination if you wish
  • We can support you throughout the justice system from reporting to court if that is what you chose.

After I was assaulted I didn’t know what to do. RASAC helped me understand my choices and I decided to tell the police what happened to me. Although it was difficult RASAC were with me each step of the way from the forensic examination to the police interviews which I had at RASAC as I didn’t want to go to the Police station. It made a big difference to me. Thank you.

You can speak to someone to find out more or to refer yourself to our service by calling us or emailing us. You can find our contact details here.

  • rapecrisisscot profile imageGreat to see a campaign from @PoliceScotland about sexual violence that puts the focus on the only people responsible: the perpetrators. Safety advice aimed at women won’t stop sexual violence, but changing men’s attitudes and behaviours can, so #DontBeThatGuy
