The Saturn Centre, Sexual Assault Referral Centre (SARC)
The Saturn Centre SARC provides a 24/7 response service to victims of rape and sexual assault who are aged 14 and over. There is no need to feel alone, our service is run by a team of dedicated and specially trained Nurses, Doctors and Support Workers and we are here to help. If you report directly to Sussex Police they can arrange for you to attend our specialist centre in Crawley for immediate support, healthcare and possibly to secure forensic evidence. We also offer a free, confidential service so you can use our services securely without any Police involvement whatsoever. Reporting without Police involvement ensures that evidence can be obtained and safely stored whilst you receive support and advice and decide on what you would like to do next. There is also a 24/7 Freephone Advice Number where you will be able to speak to a specialist Nurse for further advice if you are unsure what to do.
