Topic: Assault

Your Question

I think I got sexually assaulted a few times by a so called “friend” when I looked it up everything he did to me was exactly what they said was sexual assault. I talked to my school about it and they didn’t take me seriously and didn’t do anything and i think he will do it to an other girl

Welcome to Childline.

In your email you state that you have been sexually assaulted by a ‘friend’. You mentioned that you spoke to your school about it and they didn’t take you seriously and didn’t do anything about it. You were very brave to tell and we are really sorry that you were not taken seriously and didn’t get the help and support that you deserve.

You have a right to be safe and a right to tell. It might help if you talk to Childline about what has happened. Childline is always here to listen and to support you.
