We’re here to help you if you have been raped or sexually assaulted in the past 12 months. You can call us 24 hours a day, seven days a week, for an initial assessment.

When we need to see you urgently, such as for a forensic medical examination (FME), we aim to see you within 90 minutes. 

We also offer follow-up care, including counselling, tests and treatments. Our medical and emotional support services are confidential and you can use any of our services without involving the police.

We see anyone in London who has been raped or sexually assaulted in the past 12 months: men, women, young people and children of all ages.

We treat you as an individual because everyone’s experience is different. We’re here for you whether you are straight, lesbian, gay or bi, or if you identify as trans* (LGBT).

What’s important to us is you and your well-being, not your ethnicity, gender, religion, sexual orientation or what you do. No one at the Havens will judge you. We’re here to help and make things easier for you.

You don’t need to be referred – it’s totally up to you if you want to see us.

We can offer you treatment, advice and support, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
