Rape Crisis Scotland National Helpline offers confidential short-term, crisis and initial support by phone, email and text. Our phone and email support is free and texts will be charged at your normal network rate.
We support people of all genders living in Scotland aged 13+ who have been affected by sexual violence. It doesn’t matter what happened or how long ago, and you don’t have to talk about anything you don’t want to. We support survivors, as well as family, friends and supporters.
Helpline is staffed by women only. Service is available for all genders, aged 13+. People who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing can access the helpline using Contact Scotland BSL. Phone interpreters are also available for non-GB-English speakers. Email support is available at [email protected].
