Greater Manchester Rape Crisis has a telephone helpline service, which provides advice, information and support to women and girls surviving sexual abuse. The helpline also provides a signposting service for male survivors and offers information and advice to friends, partners and other family members supporting survivors.
What support you can expect
A free face-to-face counselling service for women over 18 who have experienced rape or sexual abuse is also on offer, along with a weekly therapy group on a Wednesday evening facilitated by trained counsellors. It provides an opportunity for women to meet together for peer support, within a supported environment.
Greater Manchester Rape Crisis is based in a local women’s centre. Women who access their services can access other activities at the centre such as drop-in groups, educational classes and alternative therapy groups.
