Rape Crisis South London

National Freephone Helpline
0808 802 9999
Open 24/7 every day of the year.

We provide specialist face-to-face counselling for women and girls aged 13 and above and play therapy for girls aged 5+, who have been raped or sexually abused at any time in their lives and who live in any of the South London boroughs.

We offer up to a year of therapy and we will discuss with you how this works when we meet with you for an initial consultation.  We do not charge a fee for our therapy, but we invite women receiving counselling to make a donation that they can afford.  Counselling sessions are offered Monday to Thursday from 10am to 8pm.

The service is provided regardless of ethnicity, religion, culture or socio-economic background and is accredited by the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions (BACP). All our counsellors adhere to this ethical framework.

Our advocacy service and our team of specialist Independent Sexual Violence Advocates continue to support women and girls who have reported or who are thinking about reporting the sexual violence they have survived to the police. This support is being provided remotely by phone, video conferencing and email.

We are however currently closed to new referrals.

RASASC provides an independent and confidential Outreach Service across South London, to women and girls aged 13+ who have survived any form of sexual violence at any time in their lives. This is provided by our team of Outreach Workers, who have been trained to support female survivors of sexual violence, and who specialise and are experienced in supporting survivors who experience additional marginalisation and barriers to accessing support.

We work in partnership with organisations that support women with experiences of incarceration and the criminal justice system, the sex industry, trafficking and sexual exploitation, homelessness, domestic abuse, female genital mutilation/cutting, refugee and migrant and women and people who use substances.
