EMCYPSAS – the paediatric sexual assault referral centre

The East Midlands Children and Young People’s Sexual Assault Service (EMCYPSAS) is the paediatric sexual assault referral centre for East Midlands. All young people under 18 who disclose sexual abuse should first be seen at EMCYPSAS. The service is also available for young adults over 18 with learning disabilities.

EMCYPSAS offers comprehensive services as required immediately after a disclosure or discovery, including medical examination and support reporting to the police. Children and young people will then be referred onto longer term care, including our CHISVA service for all under 18s across Nottinghamshire County, and our therapeutic services for all under 13s and some 13-18 year olds in Nottingham City.

To refer a young person to EMCYPSAS, please call 0800 183 0023. The phone line is available 24/7.
