How We Support

Rape Crisis Grampian (RCG) is the only specialist support service for survivors of sexual violence in Aberdeen City and Aberdeenshire. RCG offer a free and confidential, emotional and practical support to anyone over the age of 13 years who has experienced sexual violence at any time in their life.

We use a survivor centred, therapeutic approach, and offer support and information to family/friends of survivors. We are focused on the elimination of sexual violence through challenging attitudes and myths, promoting equality, empowerment, and education.

RCG offers independent advocacy support to survivors who are engaged or are considering engaging in the criminal justice process, who require advocacy with other agencies as a result of their status as survivors of sexual violence.

As part of a national project led by Rape Crisis Scotland (RCS) we provide prevention work regarding sexual violence within secondary schools, colleges, universities and other youth settings.

Once referred to RCG, survivors will be added to our waiting list, but during this time, they can access a ‘one off’ crisis appointment if required and join one of our groups.

We listen and we believe!
