Sexual Abuse


Definition: may include rape and sexual assault, or sexual acts to which the adult has not consented, or could not consent, or where pressure was applied to secure their consent.


Always call 999 if immediate risk

How to get help: 

If you did not give your consent to sex or were unable to give your consent/have been sexually assaulted or abused we would encourage you to contact Essex Police on 101. The sooner the assault is reported, the more evidence that the Police will be able to collect to help prevent you or someone else being hurt again.
