If you have been raped or sexually assaulted up to 10 days ago

You may be scared, confused and feeling isolated. The St. Mary’s Centre is here to help you. We have a team of specially trained and dedicated staff who understand what impact rape and sexual assault can have on people’s lives. Our staff will aim to help you recover both physically and emotionally from your experience.

You can take these immediate steps:

  • Contact us on our 24 hour helpline 0161 276 6515 and access our full range of services.
  • If you are in danger it is important that you contact the police. If it is an emergency call 999 and if it is not an emergency, ring 101 and you will be put through to your local police service and they will take appropriate action. Alternatively, find a safe place to stay.
  • If you need to escape a dangerous situation but have children or other responsibilities that prevent you from leaving please call us on 0161 276 6515 as we have links to other agencies that can help find you a safe place to stay. You can also call the police.
  • If you have serious injuries you must seek immediate medical help.

**We may need to break confidentiality if we believe you or someone else is at risk of serious harm. We would keep you informed of this wherever possible. We will need to share information with other agencies if we believe a child has been or is at risk of serious harm.
