Established since 1985, Rape Crisis South London changed its name from the Rape and Sexual Abuse Support Centre (RASASC) in 2012, with the advent of three other Rape Crisis Centres created to provide specialist support to women living in the North, East and West of London. We are a fully independent organisation based in Croydon providing a high standard of professional support to female survivors of sexual violence living anywhere South of the river Thames in addition to providing national support to women living anywhere in England and Wales through the National Rape Crisis Helpline.

Our services include:
• Face to face therapy of up to 12months with qualified, sexual violence specialist therapists.
• Group therapy, Self Esteem Workshops, Group for parents, partners & friends of survivors.
• National Rape Crisis Helpline open every day of the year.
• Independent Sexual Violence Advocates (ISVA's) for survivor's going through or thinking about going through the Criminal Justice System in any South London borough.
• Information & Guidance to professionals, survivors, partners, friends & family of survivors.
• Prevention work in schools on sexual consent, self-esteem, gender and sexualisation.
• Training to professionals working with survivors including social workers, GP's, counsellors.
• Outreach Service for women in prostitution based in Wandsworth.
• Feminist self-defence, working in partnership with the London Centre for Personal Safety.
• Independent Domestic Violence Advocates based at the Family Justice Centre in Croydon.


We are an all-woman organisation working with the empowerment model across all of our services. This is a holistic model which aims to facilitate a woman's ability to take back choice and to develop trust in herself. The empowerment model gives women control of our own direction, facilitating us to find our own power, and trusting us to make the right decisions for ourselves. We run a woman-only service, for female survivors of rape or childhood sexual abuse aged 14 & over. We are able to sign post male survivors to relevant specialist services in their area.

Our fully interactive website is designed for easy access across platforms including smartphones, iPads, laptops and desktop computers. It contains detailed information on all of our services, recent news updates and campaigns as well as information on rape, childhood sexual abuse, reporting, counselling, ritual abuse and coping mechanisms, available as free downloadable PDF's.
