Scottish Borders Rape Crisis Centre (SBRCC) provides a safe, non-threatening environment where survivors can talk freely and in confidence. We support all self-identifying females aged 18+ and all young people of any gender/gender identity aged between 12 and 18, who have experienced rape or any form of sexual violence, either recently or in the past. We work in partnership with others towards the elimination of violence against women.

We are an all-women organisation, believing that this allows us to offer the most appropriate and secure support to women and young people affected by rape and other forms of sexual violence. While we acknowledge that men experience rape and sexual violence, we also know that most incidents are committed against women by men, and it is to women that our efforts are primarily directed. Rape and sexual violence are crimes of violence against women and girls which reflect inequality in our society: redressing this inequality defines our work with women and girls who have experienced rape and other forms sexual violence.

We aim:

  • To enable survivors to take their own steps towards reclaiming control of their lives.
  • To support them through information, listening, and acceptance as they make choices for themselves; and
  • To embody the principles of equality and empowerment in all we do.

SBRCC recognises that currently survivors accessing our services are not representative of the diverse society in which we live, for the reason we are committed to increasing our engagement and participation within diverse intersectional communities. This post will specifically focus and bring expertise and knowledge to further our intersectional approach. The role aims to increase our reach and engage survivors specifically within rural and remote communities, LGBT+, BME, children & young people, disability, older women and survivors with learning difficulties.
