Twitter Q&A Session with Avon & Somerset Police LGBT

Avon & Somerset Police will be hosting a live twitter Q&A Session on Wednesday 20th May around Male Rape and Sexual Assault

It’s estimated that 12,000 men in England & Wales are raped each year and that less than 1 in 10 will report it to the police.

The session will take place from 6pm – 8pm on Wednesday 20th May via the  hastag on the  twitter account , and will be hosted by PC Mike Stevens who is part of the Avon & Somerset team who have recently launched a campaign to raise awareness and increase confidence in reporting rape and serious sexual assault.

As part of this work, there is already a dedicated webpage available that answers some questions about male rape, as long as providing information on how to report a rape or sexual assault to the police, and providers of help & support.

To find out more, and for information on reporting rape or sexual assault, visit the Avon & Somerset Constabulary Website.
