Since 1976 the Rape Crisis Centre has
been providing free and confidential support to women and girls who have been
raped, sexually assaulted or sexually abused, no matter when this has happened
in their lives.
For as long as the Rape Crisis Centre in Glasgow exists, we will be committed to providing services for women and girls and challenging the attitudes that support and condone male violence against women.
We support women whether or not they have reported the incident to the police. We are based in Glasgow but also offer services to women in Renfrewshire, East Renfrewshire, East Dunbartonshire, West Dunbartonshire and Inverclyde.
The Rape Crisis Centre knows that women and girls of all ages and backgrounds experience rape and sexual assault, and it can happen at any time in their lives. Because this is usually perpetrated by men they know, women and girls often don’t report due to fear, shame or the feeling that they will be blamed or not believed.
Throughout the lifetime of Rape Crisis we have had one fundamental aim - to provide a free and confidential support service to women and girls who have experienced rape, sexual assault, or sexual abuse. We know that across the UK, three million women experience some form of gender based violence every year (Fawcett Society: 2009) yet this abuse of women and girls remains under-reported and unnamed.
The Rape Crisis Centre has a range of services for women and girls who have experienced any form of sexual violence or abuse. We work with young women from aged 13 years.
