Sexual Violence Campaign

Sexual Violence Campaign Launches

Speaking at the February 2019 campaign launch the Commissioner said: “We know that 31% of all reported rapes in Lancashire happen within relationships. This is shocking and we have to send out a clear message that being in a relationship does not equate to having the right to force or coerce your partner into anything they don’t want to do.

“Anyone who uses physical force or coerces their partner to comply is committing a crime and it is important that we spread that message.

“If you are in a relationship where that choice is taken away from you I would urge you to contact Lancashire Victim Services for support and advice, even if you don’t want to report to the police.”

Available support

Anyone affected by sexual violence can access specialist support through Lancashire Victim Services.

It doesn’t matter whether the crime has been reported to the police. You can speak to a specialist adviser in person, over the phone, via email or by text.
Your adviser will respond sensitively to your needs and will support you at your pace. They are your advocate and will work with you to find out what kind of support you need. They will only give you the support you choose and will work with you for as long as you want.
