Support for reporting sexual violence to the police

Deciding whether or not to report sexual violence to the police can be a daunting experience.

Our advocacy service is available to anyone (over the age of 13) who has experience rape, sexual assault or childhood sexual abuse and who has reported to the police or who is considering reporting to the police.

Our advocacy workers can offer practical and emotional support, helping you to make the decision that is right for you. If you do choose to report, your advocacy worker can support you through the whole criminal justice process.

They can offer a range of different types of support, depending on your needs and the kind of support you would like. They can:

  • Provide you with information about the criminal justice system and what to expect from the process
  • Liaise with other agencies such as the police and the procurator fiscal and keep you informed
  • Arrange for you to have your statement taken at our centre and be present during your statement
  • Attend appointments related to the criminal justice process including any potential court case
  • Listen to you, believe you and offer you non-judgmental emotional support before, during and after the process
