Thank you for visiting Rape Crisis Scotland website. We are the national office for the rape crisis movement in Scotland.

Rape Crisis Scotland provides a national rape crisis helpline and email support for anyone affected by sexual violence, no matter when or how it happened. The helpline is open from 6pm to midnight, 7 days a week, and offers free and confidential initial and crisis support and information. The helpline can also put you in touch with local rape crisis centres or other services for ongoing support. The helpline offers a mincom service for deaf or hard of hearing people, and can arrange for language interpreters if your first language is not English.


Our member centres provide free confidential support and information for survivors of sexual violence and others who have been affected by the issue. You will find some commonly asked questions here. If you need any further information, please let us know.
