Rape Crisis (England and Wales) is the national umbrella organisation for a network of affiliated Rape Crisis Centres which provide crisis and longer term specialised counselling, support and independent advocacy to women and girls of all ages who have experienced any form of sexual violence.
We promote the needs and interests of women and girls who have experienced sexual violence, ensure the provision of local, specialist services and work towards the elimination of sexual violence. We do this by:
The Rape Crisis National Service Standards (RCNSS) represent a joint collaboration between Rape Crisis (England and Wales) and Rape Crisis Scotland. Our aim is to ensure that no matter where in the UK a survivor lives, she will receive a consistent and high quality response from any Rape Crisis Centre she approaches for support.
The RCNSS were developed in full consultation with member Rape Crisis Centres which means they are informed by the collective experience of frontline practitioners and the voices of survivors.

The Monitoring and Evaluation Toolkit has been developed by RCEW in order to simplify and standardise the way in which Rape Crisis Centres monitor and evaluate their work by providing a core set of outputs and outcomes and monitoring tools to support them with this. The toolkit was developed in consultation with a number of Centres and survivors and has been piloted by six Centres; using their experience and specialist knowledge means that we have developed a tried and tested model for Rape Crisis Centres to adopt.
