We are the local Rape Crisis Center. We provide lots of different types of support to survivors of sexual violence. Our counselling is for young people of any gender up to age 18, and for self-identifying women survivors aged 19+. Our advocacy service is for survivors of any gender, aged 14+ and helps you with the criminal justice system – for example, they can help you talk to the police, help you with a case going to court, and with the practical things that you might need a hand with in everyday life such as letters to school explaining how you’re doing. We also have a helpline for self-identifying women aged 14+ who are survivors of sexual violence. Supporters of survivors can also call this helpline. We run a drop in for self-identifying female survivors aged 16+ twice a week, where you can talk to other people who have had similar experiences. We also have a daytime drop in on the third Friday of every month. There are also regular yoga classes, gardening sessions and workshops. You can find out all of the details for each of these services on our website.
