The Rape Counselling and Resource Centre Kilmarnock offers free and confidential support to anyone aged 13+ who has experienced sexual violence at any time in their lives. If this has happened to you, then you can contact our centre. We offer ongoing support, either face-to-face appointments or through our telephone helpline. When you contact us, our workers will:
- Listen to you
- Believe you
- Support you
We can also provide support to family members, friends, partners and workers to help them better understand how your experience of sexual violence has affected you.
We are committed to promoting equality and valuing the diversity of anyone who is a survivor of sexual violence, whether you are a woman, girl, man, boy or have another gender identity.
Our Support Services
