Not ready to talk? Find out how The Shores can help you

Our centre provides a service to men and women who have experienced rape or sexual assault.

All clients are treated with dignity and respect, regardless of gender identity, age, ethnicity, ability or sexuality.

We understand that accessing support for sexual abuse can be incredibly difficult for anyone, but for those from black and ethnic minorities, LGBTQ+ and people who have physical, learning or mental difficulties, there are often extra barriers that may make you feel unable to reach out for support.

Our staff work hard to ensure that our service is accessible to everyone because equality is important to us.

We provide advice and online resources to help you offer the right support and advice to your service users.
The Shores is here 24/7, 365 days a year to offer you information and guidance if someone discloses to you that they have been raped or sexually assaulted, regardless of when it happened.
