Rape Support Line

Micklegate Ward, York


Service Description The Rape Support Line is a free, confidential service offering telephone support, advice or just a listening ear to adults who have been raped, sexually assualted or abused.

The line is run across York and North Yorkshire by an organisation called IDAS, which also offers victims of domestic violence refuge space and support.

The line is staffed through a mixture of volunteers and paid workers who have received specialist in-depth training. They won't try to persuade you to take a particular course of action, but they will listen to what you want. They can also offer you practical advice such as where to get medical help and what to expect if you decide to report an offence to the police.

If you need to speak somebody from the rape support team call 03000110110 (24 HR)

For times when we are not available there is the Rape Crisis line on 0808 802 9999.
