HealthLearning & Careers

Herts SARC (Sexual Assault Referral Centre) helps men, women and young people living in Hertfordshire who have experienced rape or sexual assault, whether this has happened recently or in the last 12 months. Herts SARC has a team of experts with a wealth of knowledge and experience in advising and supporting you. This team includes specially trained Independent Sexual Violence Advisors (ISVAs), who will care for you if you have been assaulted, liaising, where appropriate with police and other agencies.

Herts SARC (Sexual Assault Referral Centre) provides immediate physical and on-going help and support following a rape or sexual assault. 

There are also Young Person’s Independent Sexual Violence Advisors (YPSVAs) available at Herts SARC and they work with 13-17 year olds who have been a victim of any kind of sexual abuse, whether or not they have reported it to the police.

YPSVAs will give the young person information and advice so they can make the best decisions for them on how to move forward, and the YPSVA will support them along this journey. This can include attending a sexual health clinic, working to help them feel safer, giving them knowledge about the police and court process if they do report it to the police, helping young people identify when they need support from other professionals such as mental health/counselling/children's services etc.

The Young Person’s Sexual Violence Advisors (Dani and Jenna) can be contacted on the SARC number: 0808 178 4448 or 01442 270 679, Monday to Thursday, 8am to 4pm and Friday 8am to 3.30pm.
