Rape Crisis Scotland working towards LGBT Chart Mark
Rape Crisis Scotland continues to work towards the LGBT Charter Mark in order to ensure that LGBT issues are mainstreamed and an integral part of our service. This will allow LGBT people to feel that they can contact us with confidence, in the knowledge that they will be fully included, valued and supported (you can find out more about the LGBT Charter of Rights here ).

If you would like to find out more or help us do this, we’d be very glad to hear from you – just email us at info@rapecrisisscotland.org.ukRead More
