Cambridge Rape Crisis Centre

Cambridge Rape Crisis Centre offers support to women and girls who have experienced rape, childhood sexual abuse, or any other form of sexual violence, as well as offering support to family and friends who are supporting a survivor. It is a confidential, non-judgemental, service run by women for women, which adheres to, and has successfully achieved, the Rape Crisis England and Wales National Service Standards, and is a professionally approved Rape Crisis Centre. Whilst the centre does not provide specialist support for men, it can put men in contact with organisations that do provide appropriate specialist support.

The centre’s aim is to listen to and believe women, supporting those who have survived sexual violence. It runs a helpline that is open four times a week: Wednesday 7pm to 9:30pm, Thursday 7pm to 9:30pm, Saturday 3pm to 5:30pm and Sunday 10am to 12:30pm. It also has an email support service, responding  to all emails within 2 to 7 days, and offers counselling in Cambridge, Huntingdon and Ely. These services are underpinned by several key principles:

  • Believe – the centre will fundamentally always believe women and girls with regards to their experiences.

  • Confidential – anything that is discussed will never be shared outside of the centre.

  • Non-directional – those accessing the service decide what they want to talk about, and what they want to do moving forwards, and the centre provides them a safe space in order to do this.

  • Non-judgemental – those who come to the centre will never be judged, and will be supported throughout whatever it is they're going through.
