We will listen, believe, and support you and try to answer any questions you have. You can access immediate support, or if you would like ongoing support, we can arrange an initial appointment.
After the initial appointment, if you choose to have support at LRCC, your name will be placed on our waiting list and a support worker will contact you when a space becomes available. We offer a block of 10 support sessions over a period of 4-6 months and a follow up block of sessions if required.
You can contact us by:
Telephone: You can self-refer to our services by calling our Contact Line on 01698 527 003 (open from 9am – 4pm Monday to Thursday, 9am-3pm Fridays).

How can the Contact Line help?
This is a free and confidential service for all survivors of rape and sexual abuse, their family, and friends.
We aim to provide you with the information and support you need, to allow you to make informed decisions and help you on your recovery journey.
We support people in the Lanarkshire area, and we can signpost people to local services depending on your individual needs.
Worried about confidentiality?
If we are worried about your immediate safety or the safety of someone else, then we may have to break confidentiality so we can get emergency help. We take confidentiality seriously and will only do this in exceptional circumstances. We will always try and get your consent before we pass information on. If we do not have your consent but have a duty to pass on information, we will always tell you what, and who, we are telling, and why. We will only disclose the minimum amount of information necessary to keep you safe. Parties to whom we may disclose information include the emergency and social services.
