Centre for victims of sex attacks open soon

News | Published:

VICTIMS of sexual assault and rape will be able to visit a new support centre from next month.

The Island's first sexual assault referral centre – which will be called Dewberry House – is nearing completion and adverts for staff will soon go live. It will be located in Plaisance Terrace, Route du Fort, opposite Howard Davis Park.

A budget of £430,000 over the next three years has been set aside for staff costs, including £130,000 this year.

Detective Chief Inspector Allison Fossey said the force and those behind the project had been busy getting the building up to standard.

Home Affairs Minister Kristina Moore said there had been some delays in the opening of the centre but she hoped it would be running before the end of April.
