Rape Crisis Surrey and Sussex (RCSAS) is run as a women-only (clients and staff) service in response to the feedback from our service users and because of the disproportionate nature of sexual violence as committed by men against women and girls. We believe sexual violence to be both a cause and a consequence of gender inequality and we are committed to an empowering feminist model of working. For male survivors we recommend contacting Survivors UK.
All our dedicated frontline staff, including our therapists, are all highly qualified and have successfully completed our OCN accredited sexual violence training course. Our therapy and advocacy services are currently delivered from our centre, whilst our outreach and training departments work in the community with women from socially marginalised groups. Any woman or girl aged 13 or older who has experienced any form of sexual violence at any time in her life is welcome and encouraged to receive our support.
Our building is safe, anonymous, comfortable, warm and welcoming with space for survivors to relax after their therapy. We have individually designed therapy rooms, group meeting rooms and comfortable offices.
