Rape & Sexual Assault

Rape can be committed by friends, partners, acquaintances, as well as by strangers. There is often an aftermath of devastation and emotional trauma, from nightmares to sleeplessness, depression and suicide attempts.

Some people may find they feel better if they carry on with their normal routine, others find they cannot cope with their usual day to day life.

Expectations from family and friends that a person should recover from this experience within a set time limit may isolate them further.  We at the Sue Lambert Trust understand that it is not always that easy, and we are here to support people through this time.
