Tuesday, January 19th, 2016

The Dublin Rape Crisis Centre is calling on all Political Parties to include in their election manifestos a commitment to the following:

D             Deliver a second SAVI (Sexual Abuse and Violence in Ireland) Report to get the true prevalence of Sexual Violence in Ireland

R             Restore funding to Rape Crisis Centres so that they can deliver the much needed services to victims of sexual violence as a consequence of the fall-out from the publications of the Ferns, Ryan, Murphy and Cloyne Reports

C              Concentrate on ensuring that the Criminal Law (Sexual Offences) Bill 2015 and the Criminal Justice (Victims of Crime) Bill 2015 are progressed into legislation

C              Create and support a safer society for all by providing age related education and prevention programmes in Primary, Secondary and 3rd Level Institutions
