Disabled Survivors and Accessibility

Our premises are in a quiet area of Hamilton, with private ground floor support rooms, easy access to train/bus station and wheelchair access at rear of building. We also offer free parking for service users. If your financial situation is a barrier to attending our centre, assistance for public transport costs can be offered on a priority basis.  If you have a designated carer or specialist support worker for mental health, physical or learning needs, they can bring you to an appointment and wait while you access support. With your consent we can speak with any other specialist worker or agency you are being supported by if this would help you in your recovery from sexual violence. If there is another community location such as a health centre that would be easier to access support from us, please let us know and we will discuss with you.

Inclusivity is one of our priorities at LRCC, and we endeavour to create a sense of belonging for our service users. Our policy is to provide equal access to opportunities, support and resources for people who might otherwise be excluded or marginalised. We aim to reach survivors of rape and other forms of sexual abuse from communities currently under-represented in our services, by reducing existing barriers to support and information services.

Recent consultations with disability organisations have shown that one of the common issues is isolation; we seek to reduce the impact of this and the many other existing issues, through partnership work with communities, specialist services and individuals to help us create a support service that meets requirements of anyone referred for support.
