Carlow and South Leinster Rape Crisis Centre provides a safe environment for survivors of sexual abuse. All staff and volunteers deeply understand both the realities of sexual violence and the impact of all forms of sexual violence. Survivor’s reactions are viewed as normal responses to trauma and to coping with the aftermath of trauma.
All staff and volunteers are trained in the reality and extent of sexual violence. In supporting survivors through helplines, advocacy, counselling, medical or legal processes, the Centre understands the need to maintain confidentiality.
All of the services at the Centre are provided free of charge.
