Rape Crisis Grampian, (RCG) provides support and advocacy to survivors of rape and sexual violence and challenges attitudes towards violence against women, men and those belonging to the LGBTI+ community.
Survivors can access information on legal processes. Our work is primarily with Survivors of rape and sexual abuse however, we also provide information and support to families, friends and partners as required.
Rape Crisis Grampian, (RCG) was formed in 1993 as Aberdeen Rape Crisis. The service was provided by a small group of volunteers who were responsible for the running of the whole organisation.
In 2005 the hard work of the charity was recognised by the Scottish Executive and were able to employ staff. In addition, RCG was able to access additional funding from Aberdeen City Council and Aberdeenshire Council to further it’s work.
In response to a variety of changes, the charity has recently changed it’s name from Rape and Abuse Support to; Rape Crisis Grampian (RCG) a registered Company Limited by Guarantee (Company Number SC299746) having our Registered Office at 112 Crown Street, Aberdeen. RCG is also a registered Scottish Charity (Charity Number SC019087) and a full member of Rape Crisis Scotland.
In 2014, the charity changed it’s constitution to enable it to support men and boys over the age of 13 years. RCG continues to provide female protected days and times within the service.
