Scottish Borders Rape Crisis Centre (SBRCC)
We provide emotional and practical support, information and advocacy to women and girls (12+) who have experienced sexual violence at any time in their lives. Our services are free and confidential.
Our objectives are to empower survivors to overcome the adverse impact of sexual violence and reclaim control of their lives, to achieve this we work in partnership with other agencies to raise understanding and awareness of sexual violence.
What do we offer?
We respect the courage and strength it takes to speak out about your experience of rape or sexual violence whether it is a recent assault or whether it happened a long time ago.
When you contact us
• We will believe you
• We will listen to you
• We will support you
When you contact us we will offer you a face to face session with a support worker either in our centre or in a safe place near you. You can use this time in any way you choose and we can talk through what support we can offer you. We can
also offer telephone and email support. We also run group work for survivors who have been through our one to one support and would like to work on their self-esteem and confidence.
If you have or are thinking about reporting what happened to you to the police you can contact the centre and speak to our Advocacy & Support worker. She will be able to give you information about the criminal justice process.
We also work in schools and other youth settings delivering workshops around healthy sexual relationships.
We support all women regardless of age, race, ethnicity, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, disability or religious or cultural background.
Our services are delivered throughout the Scottish Borders region.
