Free and confidential information and support for anyone (age 13 and over) in Orkney affected by any form of sexual violence.
Need help now?
Whether you are in crisis because of a recent incident or something that happened a long time ago, we want to help. Contact Orkney Rape & Sexual Assault Service and/or the RCS Helpline.
Keeping you informed
We have lots of information on sexual violence – coping with trauma, what to expect if you report, keeping safe online.
Knowing more can help with understanding sexual violence, and what to do about it.
Any sexual activity between two people should always involve equal agreement. If you have ever experienced sexual violence, you did not cause it and you are not to blame.
You are not alone
It may not feel like it, but you are not alone. There are people who want to help.
If you don’t want to speak to someone local, you can phone or email the Rape Crisis Scotland helpline. It’s open every day. You might not want to talk to anyone for now. There are things you can do to help yourself, which other survivors have found helpful.
If you go to the information section of our site you can find some ideas to help with common effects of sexual violence and ways to feel better in yourself.
