Background Information: National Advocacy Project

The National Advocacy Project is funded by the Scottish Government and is a partnership between RCS and the 17 local Rape Crisis Centres across Scotland. The project aims to provide support and advocacy to survivors who have engaged or are considering engaging with the criminal justice system following a sexual crime. You can read more about the National Advocacy project here rapecrisisscotland.org.uk/national-advocacy-project

The broad objectives of the National Advocacy Project are:

• An improvement in the support available to survivors of rape and serious sexual crime

• An improvement in the experience of the criminal justice process for survivors of rape and serious sexual crime

• The development of a better understanding of motivations whether or not to proceed within the criminal justice process, and what difference advocacy support makes to this decision.
