The Rape Crisis Centre live chat is a confidential support and information service for women and girls aged 13 and over who have experienced sexual violence at any point in their lifetime.

You can access this service daily between 11am-2pm and in the evening Monday-Thursday between 5:30-7:30pm.

This service is also open to male friends and family members who are supporting a female survivor of sexual violence. When one of our trained workers is available you can type into the box for confidential support. Our workers are trained to give you information and support and can also sign-post you to a range of other services in your area so that you can make the right choices for you.

We will listen without judgement. You have no obligation to disclose what has happened to bring you to our service. We will not keep your conversations and you don’t need to give us your real name or any contact information.
