When were you raped or sexually assaulted?
The most important thing after an assault is that you are safe. If you think you are in any danger at all, it is very important that you call the police if it is safe to use your phone. They will make sure that you are safe from harm. Call 999 straight away if you think you are in any danger (for textphone, dial 18000) and ask for the police. If you have been injured, tell the police when you speak to them and they will make sure you get the treatment you need.
