Due to the current restrictions related to Covid-19, Lanarkshire Rape Crisis Centre is not actively recruiting at the moment. We are hoping to resume as soon as possible and will update our website and social media channels as soon as opportunities arise.
We particularly want to create an environment where all communities feel free to become involved in volunteer work within LRCC, to enable us to reflect the diversity that exists across the wider areas of Lanarkshire.
It costs LRCC over £300,000 per year to deliver our core services, so financial support is crucial to our growth and sustainability. Therefore, we continue to work very hard at securing enough funds to sustain and develop service provision through the submission of funding applications to various trusts and charities, fundraising and encouraging donations.
We would like to acknowledge existing and previous financial support provided by the Scottish Government, North Lanarkshire Council, South Lanarkshire Council, National Lottery – Young Start and the many individuals who have raised funds and made donations. We would also like to acknowledge support from some local businesses who provided donations and prizes for fundraising activities, to help LRCC deliver its services to the women of Lanarkshire.
If you would like to help by making a donation to LRCC, you can do so here: https://localgiving.org/lanarkshirerapecrisiscentre, or if you would like to discuss other ways in which you could support us, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
These positions require female applicants and are exempt under Schedule 9, Part 1 of the Equality Act 2010.
