  • Get Consent campaign

    Created: 24/03/2021

    In nearly half of all rapes reported to Police Scotland, the perpetrator was the partner or ex-partner of the victim. This means that from 01 April 2020 to 31 January 2021, 46 per cent of rapes reported were linked to existing or former relationships.

    Launching its 2021 Get Consent campaign, Police Scotland is warning that sex without consent is rape – and that includes within a relationship. The Get Consent campaign is perpetrator-focused, aimed at men aged between 18 and 35 – the peak age for offending.

    Rape Crisis Scotland’s national rape crisis helpline is available 08088 01 03 02 every day from 18:00 until midnight for anyone affected by sexual violence.
