North London Rape Crisis – How we work

Trust

We recognize that building trust is important. You can access our services whether or not you choose to report to the Police. We are independent of statutory services.

Confidentiality

All of our services are confidential, unless we feel there is a significant risk of harm to yourself or another person and we would always try and talk to you about this concern.

Empowerment

We want you to make the choices that are right for you. Our trained, professional, and empathetic team are here to support you according to your own needs, and at your own pace.

It’s not your fault

There are lots of myths about sexual violence. At Rape Crisis we do not subscribe to these myths. We know that 100% of the responsibility for what happened lies with the perpetrator of the abuse. Find out more about Rape Myths

Coping with sexual violence

Sexual Violence impacts everyone in different ways. However you are coping right now, this will be a natural response for you. There is not a right or a wrong way to cope.

We are here to offer you support whatever you are feeling. Some women tell us they feel unable to sleep due to nightmares or have trouble trusting other people around them.

Some survivors feel shame, blame and self-hatred others may feel angry, tearful or suicidal. Some feelings may come up months or years later or something that happens in our life will ‘trigger’ or remind us of the abuse.

We encourage you to seek support however you are feeling.
