For professionals

It can be very difficult to know how to support clients who have been raped or sexually assaulted, but you can be a good source of support. Clients can be referred into our service by completing our referral form, below.

You can phone us for advice and guidance and details of relevant partner agencies that work with those who have been sexually assaulted. We hold professional tours of our unit and we also provide inputs to teams who want to know more about our services and how they can better support disclosures.

Clients are able to access our services at The Ferns without involving the police or other agencies. However clients do have the option to access the Sexual Assault Referral Centre(SARC) via police, self or other professionals can refer.

If you would like further information or an input from The Ferns team, please get in touch by emailing [email protected] or by calling 0300 123 5058.
