Coventry Rape and Sexual Abuse Centre (CRASAC) is the only specialist service in Coventry which provides support for adults and children who have been impacted directly or indirectly by sexual violence or abuse at any time in their lives. This includes online abuse and exploitation.
We aim to address the trauma and injustice of sexual abuse through specialist advocacy, counselling and psychotherapy, training and prevention services.
Our work helps victims and survivors overcome the effects on wellbeing, physical and mental health, and regain the lost power and control as a result of sexual violence and abuse.
Founded in 1981 by a group of women who recognised that there was a lack of support for other women survivors of sexual abuse, we now have over 40 years’ experience working with victims and survivors of sexual violence and abuse.
CRASAC’s experienced team includes specialist counsellors who are experts in trauma informed therapy; Independent Sexual Violence Advisors (ISVAs) who provide advocacy and crisis support especially around the criminal justice system; and trained emotional support workers.
We work from a feminist perspective and recognise that sexual violence is both a cause and consequence of gender inequality. We also understand that men are victims/survivors and provide services for all people regardless of sex or gender.
