How We Support
Rape Crisis Grampian (R.C.G.) provides support to people, over the age of 13 years, who have been subjected to sexual violence at any time in their lives.
We offer a variety of support which is led by the individuals’ needs and particular circumstance.
The support is provided by trained, paid and volunteer support workers, in a safe environment which offers the individual the space and time to talk about their experience without being judged.
Initial contact can be made via the telephone, email, letter or by visiting the centre in Aberdeen.
Survivors will be invited to attend a initial appointment to discuss the type of support that best suits their circumstance i.e. face to face, telephone, email or text emotional support or Advocacy, support survivors of sexual violence who choose to make contact with the legal advice services.
R.C.G. can provide the individual with information on the law, health and any other issue relating to sexual violence. This information may then enable the survivor to make an informed decision about their way forward.
In addition, a survivor will be offered information, “signposting,” to any other organisation which may be able to offer support appropriate to the individuals’ other needs as required.
At R.C.G. we aim to offer a service which is led by the needs of individuals who have experienced sexual violence at any time in their lives and enabling them to become true survivors!
