The Compass Centre and NHS Shetland are raising awareness of Shetland's Sexual Assault Referral Centre (SARC) as part of Sexual Health Awareness Week (11th - 17th September).
The SARC is a service for anyone who has experienced rape and/or sexual assault in Shetland which allows for the collection of forensic medical evidence on Isle. This service was opened at the Gilbert Bain Hospital in Lerwick in April 2022 and was the first of it's kind in Shetland.

Compass Centre receives almost 200 submissions to new #SaferShetland campaign against sexual harassment & intimate image abuse
Following on from #WisToo, The Compass Centre, also known as Shetland Rape Crisis, has curated a digital and print awareness-raising project focused on experiences of sexual harassment and intimate image abuse in Shetland.
To ensure the campaign was informed by realistic concerns in the community, the charity invited folk to make anonymous submissions reflecting on their experiences of sexual harassment and intimate image abuse in Shetland. Over the four-week submission period, it received almost 200 first-hand accounts.
