Providing support, counselling, advocacy and information to survivors of rape and sexual abuse & their friends and whānau.
Wellington Rape Crisis do hugely important, under-rated and sadly under-funded work in our community. It's an unfortunate truism that there is far more demand for support for victims of rape and sexual abuse than there is people to deliver it. As such, WRC involves many hard-working volunteers, and even staff work many more hours than which they are paid for. Keep an eye open for their collection boxes around town; their annual street appeal, usually in the first half of the year, is usually deservedly successful, too.
