Open day at Sexual Assault Referral Centre

November 20, 2012, 11:10 am

A centre offering advice and support to victims of sexual abuse is holding an open day.

The Sexual Assault Referral Centre (SARC) in Rivergate, Peterborough, will be opening its doors on Friday, November 30, for visitors to get an insight into the services on offer.

The SARC, which opened in 2010, is a dedicated venue providing victims of rape and sexual abuse medical and sexual health care, counselling and support.

Staff are also trained in supporting victims of historical abuse.

Police work closely with the SARC to ensure any offences which are revealed are fully investigated.

Detective Inspector Karry Beeby said: “We have a range of services on offer to support victims and give them help and advice.

“Anybody can come along on the day to take a look at all the facilities and meet the staff.”

The open day comes during the national campaign 16 Days of Action to End Violence Against Women which runs from November 25 to December 10.

The centre will be open from 11am until 2pm.
