How we can help
We provide a range of services to suit your needs. Our support and advocacy services are available daytime, evenings and weekends.
Since 1984 we have been providing free and confidential support to women and girls who have been raped, sexually abused and / or exploited in Dundee and Angus. Studies have shown that one in two young women will experience some kind of unwanted sexual contact before they reach the age of eighteen. This can range from flashing to rape and all of these experiences can have a lasting effect on the woman.
The prevalence of ‘victim blaming’ often silences survivors from coming forward. We respect the courage and strength it takes to speak out about your experiences, whether it has been a recent assault or it happened a long time ago.
Our support services are free and we offer appointments on weekdays, evenings and weekends. What you tell us remains confidential within our support team. We will not tell anyone that you have contacted us, unless you want us to. However there are some circumstances when we are required by law to share information.
These are the support services we provide in Dundee. We have a part time worker who provides support to women in the Angus area. If you want support you can use simply phone or email us or have person or agency contact us on your behalf.
We offer telephone support, one to one support, letter and email support, group work, Skype and instant messaging support. We provide a drop-in service weekly for women who require crisis support.We also provide support and advocacy for women who wish to report to the police and / or attend court with her.
We have access to support resources and booklets for survivors and agencies. All of our publications are available online and are free to survivors, their partners, support workers, family or friends.
