What We Believe

We listen, we believe and we never judge.

We believe rape and sexual violence is never the fault of the survivor.

We understand that male violence against women is one of the most serious inequalities facing women in the UK today.

HARCSAC services are managed and delivered by women, for women. HARCSAC services support women to articulate their own experiences and reality in their own way in a safe, non-threatening, women only space. HARCSAC asserts that women and children can never be held responsible for the choice made by another to abuse them.

We believe that the women who use our services are best placed to identify their own recovery needs.

The Rape Crisis Movement

HARCSAC is a member of Rape Crisis England and Wales (RCEW) and adhere to RCEW Service Standards which is an umbrella organisation that supports Rape Crisis Centres all over the country.  RCEW provides national standards for centres, lobbies government, and promotes awareness raising work.
