A SPECIALIST sexual assault referral centre based in Antrim has experienced an upsurge in calls following the recent sex scandals to hit the House of Commons and Hollywood.
The Rowan is the regional Sexual Assault Referral Centre for Northern Ireland and is jointly funded by the Department of Health, Social Services and Public Safety and the Police Service for Northern Ireland.
The team there delivers a range of support and services to children, young people, women and men who have been sexually abused, assaulted or raped.
This week manager Karen Douglas said that the Antrim facility has seen a rise in calls, which is being attributed to the global media storm in the wake of the publicity surrounding scandals at Westminster and in the film industry.
