Last year we helped over 300 adults and 25 children through our one-to-one Counselling, impacting significantly the lives of around another 1000 close family members. The people we help have ranged in age from 6 to 88.

Counselling has given me a new lease of life, to put the past behind and move on, a new start, a new beginning, this would not have happened if I hadnt contacted RASAC, thank-you all so much.

People who have experienced rape and sexual abuse often face multiple challenges which can lead to difficulties managing mental health issues including anxiety, stress, trauma symptoms and depression.

Counselling has made me who I am supposed to be I am the person who i have always wanted to be and should have been I will never forget my counsellor and if it wasnt for her I would not be here. Thank you RASAC from the bottom of my heart.
