Rape Crisis Scotland
Rape Crisis Scotland (RCS) is the national office for the rape crisis movement in Scotland. We support the work of local centres and develop new centres in areas where there are no or few specialist services. We also work with other agencies such as the police, Crown Office and health services providing training and consultancy to improve the response to those who are affected by and who perpetrate sexual violence. Through our campaigns, briefings and publications we raise awareness of sexual violence, challenge attitudes and press for legal change.
The Rape Crisis Scotland National Helpline provides crisis support for anyone in Scotland affected by sexual violence at any time in their lives.
Rape Crisis Scotland is governed by a Board of Directors which includes representation from local rape crisis centres, thus ensuring that the strategic direction of the organisation is directly influenced by the needs and views of our member centres across Scotland.
