Our helpline offers confidential short-term, crisis and initial support by phone, email and text. Our phone and email support is free and texts will be charged at your normal network rate.
We support people of all genders living in Scotland aged 13+ who have been affected by sexual violence. It doesn’t matter what happened or how long ago, and you don’t have to talk about anything you don’t want to. We support survivors, as well as family, friends and supporters.
We can also put you in touch with local Rape Crisis centres or other services if you need longer-term support.
We can arrange for free language interpreters, including British Sign Language, to access support if your first language is not English. More information on Deaf access to support.
We are running a pilot webchat support service from 9th November until 18th December. Webchat support will be available on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays during our helpline opening times (6pm - midnight) throughout this period. You can access webchat support by clicking the button on the bottom right of our website and will be connected directly to a helpline worker. Find out more about confidentiality, including webchat support, here.
