For young people
If you think you
have experienced sexual violence, you can speak Rape Crisis Scotland for
It doesn’t matter what it was that happened – even if you’re not sure that it was sexual violence.
It doesn’t matter how long ago it was or who it was that hurt you. What happened wasn’t your fault. You don’t have to cope on your own.
We are here to help and we will listen to you and believe you. What you tell us is completely up to you.
We will never judge you, or tell you what to do.
Sexual violence affects different people in all sorts of different ways. We know that you may have lots of questions.
You will find answers to many of the things people often ask here.
There are also resources below* and elsewhere on this website which can help you with some of the things you might be feeling.
If you’d like to speak to someone and get support, there are lots of ways to get in touch with us.
Healing from sexual violence can take time, but we are here for you, when you are ready.
