Find a Rape Crisis centre

Use the search bar below to find your nearest Rape Crisis centres.


  • For some people, the centre that can support them is actually farther away than their nearest centre. Please always check your area is listed under a centre before contacting them – if it's not listed, they probably won't be able to offer you services.
  • The search results will show you centres in order of which ones are closest to your search location 'as the crow flies' (in other words, which ones would be closest if you were to draw a straight line on a map).
