Services for victims of sexual assault

Tuesday, June 13, 2006

During a recent visit to Sweden for a Council of Europe conference on gender equality, Meg took the opportunity to visit a number of projects in Stockholm. After a visit to a women’s refuge to discuss domestic violence, she had a tour of the newly opened sexual assault centre. With this new facility, all victims are brought to the centre which is equipped to process the forensic evidence, provide immediate psychological help and support, and provide all the follow up medical checks.

 

Dr. Lottie Hellstr?m explained that this new service meant that all the evidence was collected while it was still useful in leading to a conviction. In addition the victims were able to have all the medical and emotional support they needed in one location.

 

Meg was impressed by the facilities and staff at this service. She discussed the development of similar sexual assault referral centres in the UK that are working along similar lines.
