“The only person to blame for a sexual assault is the offender”
How can you better protect yourself and friends though from sexual predators?
Significant numbers of stranger sexual assaults occur whilst people are on nights going to pubs and clubs.
- Friends Together - Stay with your mates no matter what. You go out together, you come home together… and why not do this in a TAXI?
- Smashed - When you are drunk you are at your most vulnerable. Sexual predators will target those who are alone and out of control. Drink Safely.
- Spiking - Always keep an eye on yours & your friends' drinks and don’t accept drinks from people you don’t know.
If you or a friend have been subjected to a sexual assault please reach out for support and help. You can contact the Police anytime but other fully confidential support agencies are available such as:
SARSVL (Support After Rape and Sexual Assault Leeds) 0808 802 3344
Victim Support ISVA service - 0300 3031971 – between 8am-8pm Monday – Friday and Saturday between 9am-5pm.
