Objectives

FVRCC is a feminist organisation and provides services across Forth Valley, comprising: Falkirk, Stirling, and Clackmannanshire. We provide free and confidential information, advocacy and support to anyone over 13 in Forth Valley affected by any form of sexual violence.

Activities

  • We support anyone (over 13) affected by any form of sexual violence

  • We provide an inclusive service: our support service is open to survivors of all genders, and we consciously focus on providing an inclusive and accessible environment to all. Unfortunately, our support space is not currently wheelchair accessible. While we are actively working towards increasing access, at the moment we are able to offer support at nearby accessible venues

  • The core work of the centre is to provide one to one support to survivors to support them to recover and heal from the trauma of sexual violence. The centre also offers group work to survivors. In addition, the centre supports family, friends and workers who are supporting someone affected by sexual violence.

  • We are a partner in the National Advocacy Project, coordinated by Rape Crisis Scotland (RCS). Our Support and Advocacy Worker provides advocacy and emotional support to survivors who are reporting, or considering reporting, to the police with this process or with on-going criminal justice proceeding such as giving evidence or attending court.

  • We are a partner in the national Rape Crisis prevention programme and deliver prevention work with children and young people across the Forth Valley area. This work is aimed at working with children and young people to explore and develop positive healthy attitudes regarding topics such as; sexual violence, social media, gender and consent.

  • We deliver training and seminars to other professionals and agencies- such as Police Scotland and NHS Forth Valley- which increase knowledge and understanding of sexual violence and its impact and collaborative multi agency working to best meet the needs of survivors.
