Victory for our Keep Counselling Confidential campaign!

The government has agreed to a change in the law that should make it much more difficult for the police to access rape survivors' counselling and therapy notes.

This follows years of campaigning by Rape Crisis England & Wales and our sisters at the Centre for Women's Justice, the End Violence Against Women Coalition and Rights of Women.

But we couldn't have done it without you, our incredible supporters! You sent nearly 1,000 emails to MPs as part of this campaign and shared countless posts on social media.

You've proved that, together, we really can make a difference.
