24 HOUR OFFICE AND CRISIS LINE
Rape Crisis is not a crisis only service. Many of our clients are survivors of historical rape; our organisation provides counselling to women who have suffered from sexual violence, whether it has occurred recently or in the past.
The women at Rape Crisis Dunedin are of varying ethnicities and come from a variety of backgrounds. All Rape Crisis workers have been trained specifically to work in the area of sexual violence and are constantly updating and developing their skills and knowledge through training workshops. All workers regularly attend supervision to ensure that they are providing the best possible service for clients, while obtaining the support they need.
Rape Crisis Dunedin works on a collective principle which means that all the women on the Collective are involved in any decision making that takes place regarding the running of Rape Crisis – financial and otherwise.
