Facts and figures
20% of women and girls and 4% of men1 have experienced some kind of sexual assault since the age of 16 and a further 1 in 20 children2 are estimated to have experienced childhood sexual abuse.
Here at GRASAC we understand that everyone has different needs and we therefore provide a range of services to both female and male victims and survivors of rape, sexual assault and childhood sexual abuse.

Our helpline is staffed by fully trained volunteer support staff. Gloucestershire Rape and Sexual Abuse Centre is reliant on volunteers to deliver support to affected women and girls throughout Gloucestershire
We see an increase in demand for our service whenever the media reports on high profile cases, or sexual assault or abuse is featured in a popular drama.
