Sexual abuse and rape

If you have been raped, made to have sex when you didn’t want it or you have been touched in a way that makes you feel frightened or uncomfortable it is a crime. It is never your fault, no one has the right to have sex with you without your permission, no matter what you are wearing or even if you are drunk. Rape or sexual abuse can happen to anyone, boys as well as girls. If you go out try not to go on your own late at night and tell someone where you are going and when you will be back.  If you are in a pub or club, don’t leave your drinks for someone to drop drugs in.  You can get help,  look at the Related Links and Services on the right.
