Rape Crisis England and Wales
Who we are
Welcome to Rape Crisis
Rape Crisis England & Wales is a registered charity and the national umbrella organisation for specialist Rape Crisis member organisations in England and Wales. We support the work of local centres and aim to develop new centres in areas where there are no or few specialist services.
Rape Crisis England & Wales campaigns continuously to raise awareness of the prevalence of sexual violence and, in particular, we highlight the importance and need for appropriate, high-quality and specialis support.
Through our campaigns and briefings we raise awareness of sexual violence, challenge attitudes and press for change.
Rape Crisis Centres provide crucial crisis and long term specialist counselling, support and independent advocacy for all women and girls of all ages who have experienced childhood sexual abuse, rape and any other form of sexual violence both recently and/or in the past; centres are community based, and independent of government and the criminal justice system.
On the Rape Crisis website you will find information about rape and sexual violence and details of your nearest Rape Crisis Centre if you need support. There is also information for family, friends, students and professionals.
