News & events
Following a detailed review of our support service, increasing demand for support and growing waiting lists we have had to take some difficult decisions to free our staff up to be able to provide more direct support to survivors of rape, sexual abuse and / or exploitation. From the 1st of September 2018 we will no longer be providing helpline or drop in support.
However, we will continue to offer planned telephone support and crisis support session.
WRASAC - Dundee and Angus has submitted the following evidence to the Dundee Drugs Misuse Commission Call for Evidence.
We have highlighted the particular needs of women involved in prostitution. We hope that the findings will improve women's experiences of engaging in substance misuse services and also to help inform the shaping of support services that meet the specific needs of women involved in prostitution in the future.
We are delighted to welcome you to our Strategic Plan 2018 - 2023.
This strategic plan was developed following consultation with staff, volunteers, service users and stakeholders within the community before being further considered at our ‘Vision Day’ in June 2017. A key context to this plan is the acknowledgement that we have faced many challenges as we moved from a collective to a formal management structure, with an overseeing board, whilst at the same time facing unprecedented increases in demands on our service.

Join the Women’s Rape and Sexual Abuse Centre - Dundee & Angus and the Rape and Sexual Abuse Centre - Perth and Kinross for the hilarious and moving show that give voice to a chorus of lusty, outrageous, poignant and thoroughly human stories
All proceeds from this evenings performance will go towards assisting the work of these local specialist organisations, who support women, children and young people with experience of gender based violence.
WRASAC fully supports the proposals to change the Gender Recognition Act 2004 to enable trans people aged 16 and over to obtain legal gender recognition on a self-declaration basis. These changes have the capacity to significantly improve the lives and rights of trans people, something WRASAC wholeheartedly advocates. Below we explain what the Equal Recognition Campaign is, and why we as a feminist organisation fully support it.
