Welcome to the website for the Rape Crisis and Sexual Abuse Counselling Centre Sligo, Leitrim and West Cavan

We are here to listen and support women and men, and young people who have been raped, sexually assaulted, sexually abused as children or have experienced other forms of sexual violence.

We will believe you

Throughout the website we refer to those who have experienced sexual violence as “survivors” to acknowledge what they have been through and the strength they exhibit in coping with and recovering from their experience.

We believe that an experience of sexual violence is not a life sentence, that recovery is possible and that survivors should be able to access the support they deserve.

We believe no matter what the circumstances sexual violence
is never the survivors fault the blame always lies with the perpetrator.
