Our Email Support service is run by Cambrige Rape Crisis Centre and is available for those who have been subjected to, or are being subjected to, any form of sexual violence and/or abuse, and who are:
- AFAB non-binary individuals
- individuals who have experienced oppression as women
This includes women and girls who are trans.
It doesn’t matter when this abuse happened, whether recently or a long time ago, we are here for you.
The service is for these survivors of all ages, backgrounds and sexual orientation and who feel comfortable receiving support from a service that is run by women for women.
We are also here for woman, girl and AFAB non-binary supporters who are supporting these survivors, personally or professionally.
If you would like to receive support from us by email, you can contact us at email@example.com.
When you email us, we aim to reply within 7 days. If you don’t receive a reply within ten days, it may be worth checking your junk mail folder just in case. Please note that we are unable to open any attachments (documents, photos etc.).
The email support service is provided by a group of volunteers. As with our helpline, all our volunteers are women and are trained in supporting survivors of rape, childhood sexual abuse, or any other form of sexual violence. If you choose to email us more than once, you will receive replies from different volunteers – we can’t guarantee that you will always receive replies from the same person.
Our email support service is not a counselling service. We don’t tell you what to do, offer advice, or try to influence your decisions; we do not claim to have any answers. Instead, we can raise questions and support you while you explore your options, and how you are feeling about managing your life. We can also provide information regarding other support services, and common ways of reacting to or dealing with the effects of sexual violence.
