Glasgow Rape Crisis is 40 years old this year and every year demand increases for our services. So far this year we have had over 11,000 calls texts and emails asking for support and advocacy and we have seen over 850 individuals for medium and longer term support. We have many more waiting for support sessions on our waiting list who are in need of support now.
with this in mind and with the support of our three patrons, Denise Mina, Susan Calman and Lauren Mayberry, we have launched a funding campaign called "£40 for 40 years". We hope to encourage donations of £40, that's £1 for every year that our service has been supporting survivors of sexual violence over an area that covers around 23% of Scotland. We need to raise £50,000 in 2016/17 so please help us by donating or sharing our info on your social media pages. You can donate here or by sending a text saying GRCC16 £5 to 70070.
