Many cases of rape and sexual assault never get reported. This may be because the victim is: 

  • Frightened they won’t be believed 

  • Worried about telling the police and going to court 

  • Worried about telling someone because they had been drinking alcohol or under the influence of drugs when they were assaulted.
