We are LRCC and we are the Rape Crisis Centre for Lanarkshire. Our specialist service delivers emotional, practical and justice advocacy support to women and girls (12ys+) who have been subjected to any form of sexual violence no matter how long ago it happened. We offer individual crisis support and advocacy services for survivors of all gender identities.
We deliver Sexual Violence Prevention & Education Programmes in Lanarkshire Secondary Schools, work with partner organisations to train staff and we raise awareness of sexual violence across the local community.
Aims & Objectives
- Provide free and confidential emotional and practical support services to women and girls (over 12 years of age), who have been raped, sexually assaulted and/or sexually abused.
- Promote increased awareness of the issues surrounding sexual violence and the situation of women and girls who have been raped or sexually assaulted/abused, to the general public.
- Raise awareness within specialised fields who work with or provide services for women and girls, for example health, education, and social work services.
We also deliver educational workshops to schools and youth organisations across North and South Lanarkshire covering topics such as consent and healthy relationships. This is delivered as part of the Scottish Government’s Equally Safe Strategy to reduce violence against women and girls. Training is also available for other professionals and organisations.
