HARCSAC is operating in accordance with government guidelines for C19 and therefore some of our services have changed but we are still here to support you.
Our helpline is still answered by a volunteer counsellor on a Thursday evening between 7.30 and 9:30pm. At any other time you can leave a message and a volunteer counsellor will call you back as soon as she can. Our female volunteers can offer information and support to you via the helpline and will be able to help you decide what is best for you.
Helpline – 01707 276512
Thursday from 7.30pm – 9.30pm calls are answered – at all other times please leave a message. Messages will be returned with discretion and your confidentiality will be protected.
Listening, believing & supporting
We provide a free and confidential service to women aged 18 and over who live in Hertfordshire and have been raped or sexually abused or assaulted at any time in their lives.
We also support families and friends who are supporting survivors of sexual violence.
“The lady on the helpline was very understanding”
“At first I though it would be strange meeting with 2 women, but it was actually very positive”
“An amazing service with amazing people”
“Just wanted to say a massive thank you for helping me overcome my sexual abuse, I could not have done it without your help”
Our thanks go to Somerset and Avon Rape and Sexual Abuse Support (SARSAS) and Manchester Rape Crisis (MRC) for use of some of their original content.
