Rape and Sexual Abuse Support Centre Croydon (RASASC)

Rape Crisis South London run the Rape Crisis National Helpline for female survivors of sexual violence. The Helpline is accessible 365 days a year to women aged 14 + who have survived any form of sexual violence, no matter how long ago. We offer specialised, confidential support, information and referral details completely free of charge. The helpline is also available to provide an immediate source of support to friends and family of survivors, as well as other professionals, to help them understand how best to support female survivors of sexual violence.

As a first step many women find it easier to talk anonymously and in confidence. The Helpline aims to provide a supportive, non-judgmental, safe space for survivors to begin talking about their experiences. We explore the options available to our callers, believing in their power to choose for themselves what they want to do next.
