About Us

Aylesbury Vale Rape Crisis exists to support women affected by sexual assault, rape or child abuse. The service is for women over sixteen affected by sexual violence. All counsellors are qualified and receive training in supporting women who have experienced abuse. The volunteers and staff providing our other support services are all trained in supporting women affected by abuse and have received additional training in the area of their work. Our service is free.

Aylesbury Vale Rape Crisis registered as a charity in 1995. Prior to that we were part of Bucks Rape Crisis. Rape Crisis has been providing a service in Aylesbury Vale since 1990.

Confidentiality

Aylesbury Vale Rape Crisis is independent of all other organisations. We do not exchange or share information with other organisations. Everything you tell us is confidential to Rape Crisis. If you are attending for counselling your counsellor will have a supervisor.

We may need to break confidentiality if we believe you or someone else is at risk of serious harm, we will need to share information with other agencies if we believe a child has been or is at risk of serious harm.

Who are we for?

  • Women who have experienced rape, sexual assault or child sexual abuse recently or in the past. It does not matter how long ago it happened you can use our service.
  • Carers of a woman who has been abused. You may be supporting a partner or friend who has been abused.
  • Mothers of abused children.
  • Male survivors can be given initial phone or email support. If appropriate can be given contact details of organisations that deal with male survivors.
