Sexual Assault Response Coordination Service (SARCS): easy read

This leaflet provides information on how to self-refer to a Sexual Assault Response Coordination Service (SARCS) in an easy read format. It provides information on accessing healthcare through NHS Scotland for anyone who has been raped or sexually assaulted.

Will anyone know if I self-refer to a SARCS?

This is a confidential NHS service. The police and other services will not know unless you tell them. In certain cases they may need to be told if you or others are at risk of harm.

If you are being forced or pressured to have sex or sexual activity, the SARCS staff can help you. They can support you to contact the Police or can refer you to support organisations.
