No matter when it happened, or who it was, if someone has harmed you or made you feel uncomfortable in a sexual way, even if you are not sure, you can contact Rise Up to speak with someone.
The ‘Rise Up’ project at Moray Rape Crisis is for any young person aged 11-18 in Moray who has experienced any form of sexual violence or abuse.
We support young people of any gender, race, sexual orientation, disability, and religious and cultural background.
At Moray Rape Crisis we have been thrilled to restart our groupwork programme for the first time since January 2020, following the easing of restrictions associated with COVID-19.
Survivors we have supported in this time have spoken about missing groupwork because it gives them a sense of community and support, wherever they are on their own healing journey. To date, our groupwork programmes have been activity-focussed and have included cooking, creative arts and singing. While no survivors attending these groups are asked to disclose or speak about their experience, survivors have spoken about the strength and solidarity they feel standing beside other survivors.
We are looking for Trustees to join our dedicated Board of Trustees and help govern our growing and developing service in Moray.
We are looking for a Treasurer to join our dedicated Board of Trustees. Working to a feminist ethos, applicants should have finance/accounting experience and knowledge of financial systems and reporting.
Training in financial governance will also be provided.
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.
