RAPE CRISIS ENGLAND & WALES

Rape Crisis England & Wales (RCEW) is the national umbrella body who represent the network of autonomous member Rape Crisis organisations across England and Wales and was set up to support specialist services. RCEW raise awareness and understanding of sexual violence in the wider community and with local, regional and national government.

 

There are 44 member Rape Crisis organisations, providing services in 56 locations across England and Wales.

 

The first Rape Crisis centre opened in 1973.  Since then, Rape Crisis Centres have been providing frontline specialist, independent and confidential services for women and girls of all ages who have experienced any form of sexual violence at any time in their lives. 

 

Rape Crisis Centres are women-led and offer a range of support, advocacy, counselling and information provided in dedicated women’s space. Many Centres provide separate space and services for children and male sexual violence survivors and/or for men who are supporting a survivor.
