Statement on the Nationality and Borders Bill from the Rape Crisis Movement

The Rape Crisis movement in Scotland stands together in opposition to the dangerous, dehumanising, and discriminatory Nationality and Borders Bill.

If implemented, this law would cause severe harms upon survivors of persecution and human rights abuse, including of sexual violence and trafficked exploitation.

Current vacancies

Established in 2018, Moray Rape Crisis provides therapeutic support, information and advocacy for children, young people and adults of all genders, aged 11 and over, in the Moray area, who have experienced any form of sexual violence at any time in their lives, including rape, sexual assault, childhood sexual abuse and sexual exploitation. We also work directly with young people in schools and youth settings, and with strategic partners, towards preventing sexual violence.

We are seeking the following experienced, motivated team members to help support and deliver the growth and development of our services.

Triggers, Flashbacks and Ways of Coping

What Are Flashbacks?

A flashback is when we re-experience a traumatic event from the past. This can last seconds or sometimes hours, often feeling more intrusive and sudden than a memory.

Flashbacks are a natural way in which our bodies and brains try to process what has happened to us and is experienced in a unique way to each survivor.

Some trauma survivors over time become aware of triggers which cause flashbacks. These can often be linked to our senses (touch, taste, smell, sight, sound) as we store trauma experiences in our bodies. This is often why we physically experience the senses of ‘fight or flight’ for example before knowing why.

Support at Moray Rape Crisis

Support room

At Moray Rape Crisis we provide free and confidential support, information and advocacy to adults and young people of all genders, aged 11 and over, who are affected by any form of sexual violence. We can support you whether you experienced sexual violence recently or a long time ago, and whether or not you reported it to the police. We also support the family members, friends and partners of people affected by sexual violence.

Coping with the trauma of sexual violence can be hard and you do not have to do this alone. Whatever you may feel at this time or whatever the circumstances, you are not to blame for what happened. We will not judge you. We will listen to you, believe you and treat you with respect.

If you would like information or support, you can phone us on 01343 550 407. If we are not able to answer the phone, you can leave a message with your contact details and how you would prefer us to be in touch- for example, by text, phone or email. You don’t need to give us your real name if you prefer not to. When we contact you, we won’t say who we are, unless we speak directly to you.

You can also email us at contact@morayrapecrisis.scot We will get in touch with you to identify a safe and convenient time we can speak with you.
