Here, no matter what
We know how hard it can be to tell someone that you have been raped or sexually assaulted. No matter what happened to you, where you were, or who did it – The Bridge can help. We’re here 24/7, 365 days a year.
You may be confused about what has happened, overwhelmed, emotional or numb. You may feel alone, angry, ashamed or frightened – these, and many other thoughts and feelings, are all normal responses to being sexually assaulted or raped.
Call us on 0117 342 6999. We will listen to you, even if you find it very difficult to speak. We will believe you. We will explain the help that is available to you and support you to decide what you want to do next.
