Our email service is available for women and girls. While we recognise the experiences and pain of men who have suffered any kind of sexual violence, here at Cambridge Rape Crisis we have found that a women-only service provision is an invaluable environment for many female service users. We recognise the need for specialist services for men and more information about these services can be found here.
This link gives more advice on how to hide your tracks online. Please note, the information we provide is for guidance only and it may not be possible to completely hide your tracks.
You can talk to us about anything in complete confidence. We will never repeat anything you say outside of Cambridge Rape Crisis Centre. The volunteer team can see your email(s) and we discuss them within the service (see ‘Will I receive emails from the same person?), however we ensure this information never reaches anyone outside of Cambridge Rape Crisis Centre.
We do not report anything that is said to us to the police or any other outside body. Our confidentiality policy is available for download if you want further information. If you are under 18, we will not pass along anything you say unless you tell us your full name and address and ask us to report to the police on your behalf. We respect your right to make decisions about your own life.
You can also find our privacy statement here.
If you contact us by email, we will know what email address you contacted us from. This means that if your email address contains your name, we will know your name. If you do not want us to know your email address you could set up a free anonymous email address and use it to correspond with us.
We delete emails after two months. This means that if you email us more than once we will be able to see that you have contacted us before, but we don’t keep emails for longer than two months as a way to help preserve your confidentiality. This means that if you return to using the service after a significant break, we won’t have a record of your previous emails.
