Unwanted pressure to have sex, being given drugs and/or alcohol that lessen your ability to consent to sex, and unwelcome touching of your body in a sexual manner are all types of sexual abuse.

Galop can help you find the support that you need, whether that’s assistance with reporting a crime or helping you to feel safer where you live.
If you’ve recently experienced an assault, a Haven can talk to you about having a medical exam, collecting evidence, and keeping yourself safe.
