The West Midlands Children and Young Persons Service offers a comprehensive service for children and young people in Staffordshire, West Midlands, West Mercia and Warwickshire, who have experienced sexual violence or sexual abuse.
At our SARC, children and young people are offered support and guidance, a medical assessment/treatment, a forensic examination, and referrals into aftercare and support services. They will be offered these services based on their individual needs, and can choose to use as much or as little of our service as they wish.
We will usually be able to offer support, healthcare, and aftercare referrals if:
The child/young person is in Staffordshire, West Midlands, West Mercia or Warwickshire; and
They have disclosed an experience of sexual violence or sexual abuse, or
It is suspect that they have been exposed to child sexual abuse.
Even if you don't know if we are the right service, please feel free to get in touch, and we can either arrange an appointment or point you in the right direction of the appropriate service.
