About us

trees and a field
  • MRC was set up in 1976 by local women as a grass roots response to the lack of appropriate services for women who had been raped or sexually abused. Today MRC continues to support women who have been raped or sexually abused, including women who have been or are involved in sex work.

  • MRC is based in a local women's centre.

  • Women, who access the services of MRC, can also access other activities at the centre, such as:
    • drop-in groups
    • educational classes
    • alternative therapy groups.

  • MRC also offers informal support and advocacy to women; for example, we are involved in supporting asylum seeking women, who have experienced rape and torture in their home countries.

  • MRC is a vital charity, which aims to support, believe and listen to women who have been raped or sexually abused.
