Grace Northumberland Rape Crisis

For women who want to talk to someone about rape or sexual abuse.

Grace Northumberland Rape Crisis is a part of Rape Crisis Tyneside and Northumberland. We are a charity offering free, confidential services for women and girls over 13 who are survivors of sexual violence. We provide a safe place to talk in confidence.  We have professional counsellors who, if it’s right for you, will meet you and support you in one-to-one sessions.

If you have experienced sexual violence or if it’s happening to you now, we can support you. We can also offer you practical and emotional support, a telephone helpline and an email support service.

If you have experienced rape or sexual abuse, however long ago, you are welcome to contact us.

To find out more about how we can help including access to specialist information, please go to the RCTN Website or contact us.

  We are still here for you!

We are still committed to being here for women and girls who have experienced sexual violence.

We are aiming to maintain our services while following government guidelines regarding Coronavirus.  We won’t be meeting anyone in person but we are working in different ways to make sure we are still able to support women and girls.

Our services that are usually delivered face-to-face, CounsellingGroup Work and Practical & Emotional Support, are still working with women and girls. We have been in touch with all of the women and girls we are currently working with to discuss how we can continue to support them.

We remain open for referrals for Counselling, Group Work and Practical & Emotional Support.  Once we have taken a referral a member of staff from that team will be in touch to discuss how we are working.  Please be aware there may be longer waiting times for some of our services.

Our Helpline and Email Support Services continue to be open at their usual times although at a slightly reduced capacity.
