Glasgow & Clyde RCC Volunteer recruitment 2017

The Rape Crisis Centre in Glasgow wants to create a community where women and girls are free from all forms of sexual violence and to achieve this within a feminist, equalities and human rights framework.

We are looking for Volunteers to work on our Helpline.
Are you willing to train on Sunday afternoons/Monday evenings ?
Do you have daytime availability for the helpline?

If you are interested you are invited to come along to our open evening on Thursday 15th September 2017 at 6pm, Room 2 at the Adelphi Centre,12 Commercial Rd, Glasgow G5 0PQ. For further info please email info@rapecrisiscentre-glasgow.co.uk

Our team shortlisted for ASBW Best Performing Team of the Year

The team at Glasgow & Clyde Rape Crisis Centre are delighted to announce that we have been chosen as a finalist for the Association of Scottish Business Women's best performing team of the year 2017. Best Performing Team

It's wonderful to be recognised for all the hard work we do daily to meet the demand on our service and to fundraise to keep our services open and growing. Our team received more than 15,000 calls, texts and emails last year with 1,100 individuals receiving long-term weekly support. We have a small number of staff and a bank of volunteers to help us to meet this demand, and with funding being cut to our centre this year we stepped up our commitment to ensure all of our service users get the high quality of care we have always provided.

If you would like to help with fundraising please visit how you can help or share our posts on social media. You could also send us a donation of tea, coffee, biscuits etc. for our service users, staff and volunteers.

The Rape Clause

Social Security (Restrictions on Amounts for Children and Qualifying Young Persons) Amendment Regulations 2017 (Statutory Instruments 2017 No. 376)

(The ‘Rape Clause’)

The Board of Directors of the Rape Crisis Centre in Glasgow met on Thursday 23rd March, and at that meeting decided that as a point of principle, the organisation would not co-operate with the Department of Work and Pensions by being a ‘third party assessor’ collecting evidence to confirm that a woman’s child/ren had been conceived as the result of a rape.

This amendment comes into law on April 6th 2017 for new claimants.

No woman should be forced to prove her own rape, or even speak about it until she decides the time is right for her, and elects to do so to a person of her choosing.
