Who we are
Rape Crisis England & Wales (RCEW) is a feminist organisation that supports the work of Rape Crisis Centres across England and Wales. We also raise awareness and understanding of sexual violence and abuse in all its forms.
We are the national umbrella body for our network of autonomous member Rape Crisis Centres across England and Wales.
We exist to improve services and promote the needs and rights of women and girls who have experienced sexual abuse, rape and all forms of sexual violence. We also work towards the elimination of sexual violence and abuse, raising awareness in the wider community and with government.
We currently have 43 member Rape Crisis Centres, providing services in 53 locations.
Rape Crisis Centres provide frontline specialist, independent and confidential services for women and girls of all ages who've experienced any form of sexual violence, at any time in their lives. Last year, Centres provided over 650,000 sessions of counselling, advocacy and support.
