RAPE AND SEXUAL ASSAULT

Has your husband, partner, family member or anyone else forced you to have sex or forced sexual acts onto you? Have you felt too worried or scared to say no to sex or sexual acts?

Sexual assault includes lots of forms of violence, not just being forced into penetrative sex (the legal definition of rape).

It can be anything from being forced into sex, to being groped in a bar, or shouted at in the street.

Sexual violence includes any touching that you don’t want or that makes you feel uncomfortable, including when you don’t feel able to say no.

Sexual violence is never your fault, no matter what you were wearing, who you were with, where you went, or how much you had been drinking.

The person who commits the assault is always to blame for making the choice to commit assault.

If you have recently been raped, sexually assaulted or attacked you can contact the SARC (sexual assault referral centre) in Cardiff via the Police
