Rape Crisis

Cape Town , Western Cape

At Rape Crisis, our mission is to promote safety in communities, to increase the reporting of rape incidences, and to ease the trauma experienced by victims in the aftermath of any form of sexual violence.

Our close connection with communities gives us the capacity for social mobilisation. Our strong network of partners in civil society gives us support for lobbying influential role players at both the national and provincial levels of government.

With the aid of these communities we serve, and by utilising well-researched information, we develop strategies to address flaws in the criminal justice system in order to ensure better care for complainants.

Most important, we provide support to victims, helping them feel safe and respected in the aftermath of assault, and we enable them with the information and knowledge to make the best decisions on their road to recovery.
