When to use our urgent advice number

The 020 3299 6900 urgent advice and appointments number is for you if you’ve been raped or sexually assaulted recently and you need first-time support or advice, or an appointment in the next few hours for a forensic medical examination.

It’s not a 24/7 general enquiry or helpline. All ongoing support and arrangements will be made at your first call or appointment, including giving you the appropriate contact numbers.

We’re grateful for your support in helping to ensure that this number is kept free for those needing this first-time support, advice and appointment.
