Sexual assault courses led by experts

The Saint Mary’s Sexual Assault Referral Centre provides a comprehensive, tailored and fully accredited programme of training and education in the field of rape and sexual assault.

As the first SARC to be established in the country, St Mary’s has led the field in sharing good practice and seeking to raise standards of care for victims of rape and sexual assault. The Centre’s extensive knowledge and understanding in helping and supporting men, women and children means that it can offer valuable insights to those working within the sexual assault community.

Open Mornings

As well as a range of training course tailored to meet the needs of all those working with people who have experienced sexual assault we also host a series of Free Open mornings throughout the year for those wanting to find out more about our service.

These open mornings provide the opportunity to look around the Centre and ask questions about the service.

Unfortuantely due to the COVID-19 pandemic we are not able to deliver the open mornings in person.

Upcoming Online Open Mornings will be taking place on Microsoft Teams from 11:00 - 13:00. If you are interested in attending please contact
