The Durham Rape Crisis Centre believes that we must be united throughout society in order to challenge and change existing beliefs, attitudes, policies and procedures that discriminate on the basis of sexism, racism, anti-Semitism, classism, sexual orientation, ableism, ageism, weightism, marital status and ethnic and cultural backgrounds.
The DRCC is committed to taking an active role in our community to end all forms of violence against women and children. As a Rape Crisis Centre we work with and provide support services to recent as well as historical or childhood survivors of sexual assault, sexual harassment and childhood sexual abuse and their families.
