In this week’s The Orcadian

This week’s edition of The Orcadian is now available in shops and online.

On the front page, news that need is outstripping capacity at Orkney Rape and Sexual Assault Service (ORSAS) — and this may only be the tip of the iceberg.

In the last year alone, 65 survivors of rape or sexual assault sought support from the charity, which is one link in the chain of resources available locally.
