Frequently Asked Questions

How can I get support?

Our Contact Line (01698 527003) is open from 9am-4pm on weekdays.

How can this service help?

This is a free and confidential Contact Line 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 can signpost you to a range of other relevant services depending on your individual needs.

We support people in the Lanarkshire area, and we can signpost people to local services. We can also take calls from survivors outside Lanarkshire area and give information about services in your area.

Please note that our Contact Line is a listening and information service.


If we are worried about your safety or the safety of someone else, then Lanarkshire Rape Crisis Centre may have to break confidentiality so we can get you help. We take confidentiality seriously and will only do this in exceptional circumstances. We will try and talk to you before we pass information on. Parties to whom we may disclose information include the emergency and social services.
