Sexual assault
treatment unit

There are six Sexual Assault Treatment Units (SATUs) in Ireland. They provide specialist care for people aged fourteen years and over who have recently been sexually assaulted or raped. 

Services include the provision of treatment such as emergency contraception and medication to reduce the possibility of developing sexually transmitted infection.  The SATU services respond to requests from the Gardaí for the collection of forensic evidence to aid the legal process. However, if you are 18 and over you do not have to report to the Gardaí - SATU will still help and support you.  There is no charge for any of the SATU services or follow up appointments. SATU services can be contacted at any time via An Garda Síochána, or by contacting the individual SATU.
