This is an exciting opportunity for an experienced, enthusiastic and driven worker to join our Women’s Support Service. The primary purpose of the role is to provide holistic support to survivors of rape, sexual abuse and exploitation.
The ideal candidate will have significant experience in providing support to survivors using counselling support skills and has a sound knowledge of the impact of rape, sexual abuse and exploitation on survivors.
We offer a competitive salary, excellent terms and conditions and the opportunity to gain invaluable skills and experience.
WRASAC has a new service offering confidential and professional, emotional and practical support to all young survivors - of all gender identities - aged from 11 to 18; who have experienced rape, sexual assault, sexual abuse, child sexual exploitation or sexual bullying; and who live in Dundee or Angus.
The support provided is always the best fit for the young person. That means that we go at their pace, we meet where they feel comfortable and we can arrange a ‘no forms, no pressure’ initial session. We know it’s important for young people to know about our service and the people before they make a decision. We welcome questions, comments and feedback.
We have a helpline and can offer planned support by phone, text, email or Skype. Face to face support is provided at an appropriate venue, for example in school, college, health centre or at our centre in Dundee.

Following several years of growth in demands for our service we have decided to make the plunge to take on additional office space. The reason is simple - without doing this we just couldn't take on additional staff or volunteers to help us support survivors.
Donating couldn't be easier. You can donate via our Crowdfunder page or simply text Vice17 £5 (or any other amount £1, £2, £10) to 70070.

Voices of Women Involved in Prostitution - Inside Outside Project
We have an exciting presentation about Inside Outside giving voice to those who have been involved in prostitution in Scotland. Their experiences and thoughts can remain buried in the mainstream press and drowned out on social media. This project gives them the space to tell their stories through their voices and their own photographs that give a visual expression of their experiences.
