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 launched in November 2011 and 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.

Wherever you see the RCNSS kitemark, you can be assured that a Rape Crisis Centre is adhering to the Standards.
