You can use the email support service to contact us anonymously, it is a confidential service as we use a specialist system that anonymises your email address. This means that we can take the support at your pace and you can decide what you want to tell us and when.
You can use the email support service to contact us for information on your options and to access practical and emotional support. We can provide information that will help you decide what you want to do about the abuse you have experienced (if anything) and can signpost you to useful resources designed to support your well-being.
If you are thinking about reporting you experience to the police, we can provide information regarding the police, court and medical procedures to help you decide what you would like to do.
