In the event of sexual violence (assault or rape) you should make an appointment with the Sexual Assault Centre. For assistance, please call 0800 0188, available 24/7. A nurse will be there to support you when you arrive at the Sexual Assault Centre. You will not be asked to tell your story more often than strictly necessary. A team of doctors, nurses, police officers, psychologists, social workers and sexologists work together to provide the best care available.
