The Centre was set up when a specific need was identified for a dedicated, specialised Rape Crisis Centre. We originally supported women and girls (13+) and are now offering the same support and advocacy to men & boys (13+) and trans in the Argyll and Bute area.
At Argyll and Bute Rape Crisis, all of our Staff and Volunteers are extensively trained in helping to support Survivors of all forms of sexual abuse and violence.
Our support services include

Our Youth Project “TESSA” aims to raise awareness of issues surrounding internet safety, cyber-bullying and grooming. It also seeks to challenge inappropriate behaviour. We deliver a range of age-appropriate interactive workshops to schools, parents groups and youth clubs.
