Support

Due to current government guidelines we are currently not providing face to face support. We are still here, just doing things a little bit differently! We are providing all support through ZOOM, phone, text or email. Please see our contact page for more information on how to get in touch.

RASAC P&K offers confidential, emotional and practical support to young people, including all members of the trans community and non-binary people, aged 12 to 18, who have experienced any form of sexual violence including rape, sexual assault, sexual abuse, sexual bullying or circulating an intimate picture without your consent.

Support really helped. I was so angry at everybody and myself. My self-harming was starting to get out of control but now I feel in control. I feel safe here and not judged, I can laugh and cry talk about anything I want and that’s okay.

We recognise how difficult it can be to tell someone about what you’ve gone through. That’s why getting support isn’t about going into detail or going over exactly what happened if you don’t want to talk about it. It’s about getting the chance to talk through your feelings in a safe, non-judgmental space. Your RASAC worker won’t tell you what to do or how to feel. We will listen to you, believe you and help you make your own decisions. Whether you decide to come here by yourself or you’re brought along by a parent, teacher or other carer, we’ll help you decide if this is the right place for you. There’s no pressure to talk or to continue coming – it’s vital that you make the decision to access support on your own terms.

If you choose one-to-one support it is up to you how you use it. Some survivors like to spend that hour talking; others will use art, writing or other creative ways to explore how they feel.

My time with (my support worker) helps me feel more positive. We can work together to figure a better way. I want to live now … and she makes me laugh!

It’s your time and you can choose how you’d like to use it.

  • Survivors are offered up to 21 one-toone sessions, 1 hour long, in which you can talk and/or use creative materials to express yourself. Sessions can be face to face, on the phone, video or email.
  • Group support (if a suitable amount of young people are interested in accessing this). Group support is a bit more structured than one-to-one sessions, but the goals are similar. This is a chance to meet other young survivors and share your experiences in a safe, confidential space.

You deserve support. You don’t need to go through this alone. For more information, get in touch by emailing us at support@rasacpk.org.uk or calling our helpline on 01738 630 965.

Coming to RASAC gives me some kind of purpose. And I begin to feel more and more safe talking to (my Support Worker) about what has happened. Thank you for being there!
