16 Pounds for 16 Days

Press Release | Rape Crisis Scotland | For Immediate Release 16 Pounds for 16 Days

New figures show on a typical day in Scotland 1035 survivors of sexual violence were waiting to access ‘life-saving’ rape crisis support. This has almost doubled from last year, where a snapshot showed this figure stood at 582. In light of this news, Rape Crisis Scotland have today (Monday 25th November) launched their biggest ever Crowdfunding campaign.

Backed by Everyday Sexism’s Laura Bates, the charity argues that ‘no survivor should ever have to wait to access lifesaving support’ as it makes a public appeal to mark the annual international 16 Days of Action campaign against Gender Based Violence.
