The Sunrise and Unity service provides support for any form of sexual violence that you have experienced, at any time in your life.
When you contact us
- We will believe you
- We will listen to you
- We will support you
We respect and understand how hard it can be to speak to someone about your experience of sexual violence whether it is a recent assault or whether it happened a long time ago. You can contact us yourself or ask someone you trust to do it for you.
When you get in touch, we will offer you an introductory session with a support worker in our centre in Galashiels or another safe venue if possible, by phone/MS Teams or Zoom. You can use this time in a way that you choose and we can talk through what support might be helpful for you, you do not need to talk about the sexual violence if you don’t want to.
Unity has been designed by young people for young people and experienced support workers are committed to providing support in a way that suits you.
