About Serenity Northants

Here at Serenity Northants, it’s about YOU and how we can help you deal with what has happened. Serenity specialises in providing a one-stop-shop approach to for men, women and children who have experienced sexual violence or abuse. You do not have to tell the police if you don’t wish to.

We have the experience and knowledge to guide you through your next steps, assist your recovery and help you decide what you want to do.

We are located within an NHS building but entirely self contained and with separate discreet entrances. Within the centre you can access immediate services to protect your health and save evidence, and longer term services that provide ongoing help, information and support.
