Tyneside Rape Crisis Centre

Tyneside Rape Crisis Centre (TRCC) is a charity offering free, confidential services for women and girls over 13 who are survivors of sexual violence. Women can feel unable to access support for many reasons and it may be difficult for you to do this - at TRCC we understand this and treat each woman with respect.

We provide free professional face-to-face counselling. We also have a helpline and email support service.

If you have experienced rape or sexual abuse, however long ago, you are welcome to contact us.

How We Can Help

Tyneside Rape Crisis Centre is a branch of Rape Crisis Tyneside and Northumberland. Based in Newcastle upon Tyne, we provide support and information for women and girls over 13 who have been affected by any form of sexual violence at any time in their lives. 

We offer a face-to-face counselling service at various locations throughout Tyneside, as well as practical and emotional support service,  helpline and email support service.
