Sexual assault

Sexual assault is when you are forced, coerced or tricked into doing sexual things when you don’t want to. Sexual assault is never the fault of the survivor. It is also a common experience to wonder whether an experience you’ve had could be sexual assault. You might experience a range of emotions and it’s important to know there are support services who can help you.
