There are lots of myths surrounding rape and sexual abuse. The truth is it’s irrelevant what you were wearing, how much you had to drink or whether you were in your own home – if you have not given your consent to have sexual relations – then this is rape.
We are a victim focused organisation and as such we do not work with anyone who has been investigated or accused of a sexual offence.
