Who we help

We support self-identifying women and girls (you get to decide if this description applies to you) who have experienced any kind of sexual violence or abuse, including rape, assault, and harassment, whether very recently or in the past.  We also support people of any age or gender who are supporting a woman or girl survivor of sexual violence.

In line with OSARCC’s current policy on women-only space, we do not currently offer ongoing support to male survivors of sexual abuse or rape, but if you contact us we can help you to think about your options for other services that could support you.

OSARCC is an inclusive organisation which actively challenges discrimination in all its forms (including but not limited to discrimination based on race, religion, sexuality, disability, age, and socioeconomic class).  We welcome contact from women from all walks of life, including sex workers and transwomen. 

Quotes from people who have contacted us

"Your service really has provided a unique space for me. I appreciate it. I was so alone for so long. I feel I am moving on"

"OSARCC answered an email and said if someone makes you do something you don't want to it's abuse, and that made me feel, for the first time, justified in calling it sexual abuse. It made me feel I had a right to feel so bad."

"The group is at least 80% responsible for my recovery so far. I can't imagine what would have happened without it."

"I found it very easy to let my thoughts and feelings reel off when emailing but I was not pushed to give any information. I felt that I was able to speak about what I wanted."
