Rape Crisis Scotland (RCS) is the national office for the rape crisis movement in Scotland. Rape Crisis Scotland support the work of local centres and develop new centres in areas where there are no or few specialist services. Rape Crisis Scotland also work with other agencies such as the police, Crown Office and health services providing training and consultancy to improve the response to those who are affected by and who perpetrate sexual violence. Through their campaigns, briefings and publications they raise awareness of sexual violence, challenge attitudes and press for legal change.

Rape Crisis Scotland is governed by a Board of Directors which includes representation from local rape crisis centres, thus ensuring that the strategic direction of the organisation is directly influenced by the needs and views of our member centres across Scotland.
