Cambridge Rape Crisis Centre offers support to women and girls who have experienced rape, childhood sexual abuse or any other form of sexual violence.
We listen and believe. We are run by women, for women. We are confidential and non-judgemental. You are not alone.
We use the word ‘survivor’ to describe the women and girls who have survived their experiences. It may not feel like a word that describes you right now, but you have survived and are still surviving.
The Wandering Words of Women: A Survivor’s Anthology is now available to buy in our online shop and on our upcoming stall at the Very Cherry Christmas on 19th November, in store at Lush on 26th November and at the Mill Road Winter Fair on 3rd December.
CRCC ran a peer support group in January-March 2016, with the aim of empowering women to use creative writing as part of their recovery from sexual violence, and to create a safe and supportive space to facilitate building friendships. The full anthology is available to purchase online and costs go towards our invaluable work supporting survivors of rape and sexual abuse.
