Hackenthorpe Lodge Sexual Assault Referral Centre (SARC) offers a range of support services to anyone living within the South Yorkshire area who has experienced sexual abuse or sexual violence, either recently or in the past.
Clients can self-refer without having to involve the Police, it is not necessary for a report to have been made to access our services. We can also, with a client's permission, take initial referrals from other professionals such as, but not limited to GP's, A&E and Sexual Health Clinics.
We also work alongside South Yorkshire Police to support any clients who have chosen to report to the Police.
