Whilst some sexual offences are carried out by strangers, most incidents of rape, sexual violence or sexual abuse will be carried out by someone known to you. This could be an acquaintance or, more likely, someone you know well. No matter what the connection, there is no excuse for these actions and they are criminal acts. Whether your experiences are current, recent or happened a long time ago, support continues to be available during the current COVID-19 restrictions and an agreement has been reached between the police and the Crown Prosecution Service that you won't get into trouble if it happened because current restrictions were breached.
