Darlington and County Durham Rape and Sexual Abuse Counselling Centre

Alert message sent 04/05/2020 11:28:00

Information sent on behalf of Durham Constabulary


RSACC has launched a new helpline number to increase its capacity to support women who have experienced rape and sexual violence. 
 
RSACC provides expert support to survivors across Darlington and County Durham, has made the investment to ensure women in crisis or those who are struggling with the long-term impacts of sexual violence can access confidential assistance over the phone.
The new RSACC helpline number is 0300 222 5730 and is open from 10am – 2pm every Monday – Thursday. 

The charity says the Covid-19 Pandemic is causing increased distress for many women with other support services closing, increased isolation and a higher likelihood of dangerous situations in the home due to lockdown guidance.

RSACC, an accredited Rape Crisis centre, had more than 700 calls to its confidential helpline in the past year. It is run by trained staff and volunteers who speak to callers for up to an hour to provide emotional support and practical information for women who are dealing with the trauma of being raped or sexually assaulted.
