Sexual Assault Referral Centres (SARC)
SARC’s offer victims of sexual crime an integrated service where victims can receive medical care, psychological counselling, legal advice and other support, all in one place from professionally trained staff. For victims, referral centres help reduce the stress of dealing with what's happening to them.
