Reporting later

Many people do not wish to report immediately, but decide after a while that they want to do so. This is perfectly acceptable and there are steps you can take to make this easier.

You can go to Safe Place any time after an assault and report and complete anonymous intelligence which lets the police know that the event has happened but discloses nothing about you

If you do not wish to see anyone, information on the Rape Crisis website states that it is possible to preserve some evidence yourself. They recommend putting your clothes (including sanitary pads/products) in a clean bag in the freezer, this can help preserve evidence, as can brush your teeth and then freezing the toothbrush.
