Thank you

Our free helpline provides information and emotional support to survivors of rape or sexual abuse, and to people who are supporting a survivor. If you need to talk, we are here to listen to you.

How can I get support?

Our helpline is open:
7.30pm to 9.30pm, Monday to Thursday (excluding Bank Holidays)

Call us on freephone 0800 0288 022 or local number 01483 546400.

How can this service help?

This is a free and confidential helpline for all survivors of rape and sexual abuse, and their family and friends.

We aim to provide you with the information and support you need, to allow you to make informed decisions and help you on your recovery journey.

We can signpost you to a range of other relevant services depending on your needs, such as the Sexual Assault Referral Centre (SARC).

Please note that our helpline is a listening and information service. It is not a counselling service, befriending service or crisis helpline.

We specialise in helping people in the Surrey area, to enable us to signpost people to local services. We do take calls from survivors outside Surrey and can give you information about services in your area.

Confidentiality

If we are worried about your safety or the safety of someone else, then RASASC may have to break confidentiality so we can get you help. We take confidentiality seriously and will only do this in exceptional circumstances. We will try and talk to you before we pass information on. Parties to whom we may disclose information include the emergency and social services.
