Where to find a Sexual Assault Treatment Unit

We’re here to help you if you’ve been raped or sexually assaulted. We are on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.

If you have reported the incident to the Gardaí, they will arrange your appointment and help you get to the Sexual Assault Treatment Unit (SATU).

Otherwise, please ring the number of your local SATU before you arrive.

This is so that we can:

  • help you make the best plan for your care
  • give you directions
  • make sure someone is here to meet you
