SAFE Place Merseyside: Sexual Assault Referral Centre (SARC)

SAFE Place Merseyside: Sexual Assault Referral Centre (SARC)

Offering a service for anyone who has been sexually assaulted both recently and at any time in the past. We have a staff of highly-trained healthcare professionals who are here to support you at our centre in Liverpool City Centre.


As well as emergency treatment, emergency contraception and advice on many other services we can offer referrals to counsellors and can help you if you would like to contact the Police. We operate a policy of strictest client confidentiality.


How do I get help?

  • The first method is through the Police. If you have been sexually assaulted, you can report this to the Police and they will arrange for you to visit SAFE Place for a forensic examination.
  • The second method is by self-referral (without police involvement). All you need to do is call us.


An operator will take your details, in confidence and you will receive a call back from one of the trained Crisis Workers who can advise you and arrange a time for your appointment to visit SAFE Place if needed.


If you don't want to make that first call yourself or ask a friend to do it then you can ask any health professional or support worker etc. You could also confide in a student counsellor or tutor who could make the first call for you.


Who is this aimed at?

Sexual assault survivors in the Merseyside area, both recent and historic.
