The Bridge is a Sexual Assault Referral Centre (SARC). We offer medical care, emotional and psychological support, and practical help to anyone who has been raped or sexually assaulted.

Here, no matter what! 

It doesn’t matter when you were assaulted, where it happened or who did it – we’ll listen to your experience and help you to get the support you choose.

Our specialist team will be here for you if you are:

  • An adult or child, living in Bristol, South Gloucestershire, North Somerset, Bath & North East Somerset or Somerset.
  • A child, living in Gloucestershire, Wiltshire or Swindon.

We also offer information and support to friends and family if someone you care about has been affected by rape or serious sexual assault.
