About us

Established in 2010, Suffolk Rape Crisis (SRC) is the only independent specialist sexual violence organisation in Suffolk providing specialist sexual violence services to women and girls (aged 14 and over) who have experienced sexual violence and/or abuse at any time in their lives.

SRC supports women and girls who have experienced any form of sexual violence including rape, sexual assault, child sexual abuse, sexual harassment, forced marriage, commercial sexual exploitation, so-called honour-based violence, female genital mutilation, trafficking, child sexual exploitation, institutional sexual abuse.

SRC is a feminist organisation, working to both support survivors, but also to challenging the underlying attitudes that allow sexual violence to continue. SRC believe that sexual violence is a cause and consequence of gender inequality and so works to highlight and challenge all forms of gender-based violence and gender inequality.

Our Mission: To work as part of a worldwide movement to ensure that women and girls experiencing any form of sexual violence in our community are able to access needs-led, specialist support. At the same time we will challenge the underlying attitudes that allow sexual violence to continue.

  • Diversity
  • Transparency
  • Change
