RCNSSlogoRape Crisis (England and Wales) is the national umbrella organisation for a network of affiliated Rape Crisis Centres which provide crisis and longer term specialised counselling, support and independent advocacy to women and girls of all ages who have experienced any form of sexual violence.

Quality Assurance

The Rape Crisis National Service Standards (RCNSS) represent a joint collaboration between Rape Crisis (England and Wales) and Rape Crisis Scotland. Our aim is to ensure that no matter where in the UK a survivor lives, she will receive a consistent and high quality response from any Rape Crisis Centre she approaches for support.

The RCNSS were developed in full consultation with member Rape Crisis Centres which means they are informed by the collective experience of frontline practitioners and the voices of survivors.
