The Dublin Rape Crisis Centre (DRCC) has received a grant of €40,000 over two years in support of its Policy and Campaigns work.

Noeline Blackwell, CEO of the DRCC, stated that “We are so grateful to The Community Foundation for Ireland for supporting this important work. A two-year commitment to our policy work will allow us to better understand and articulate the harm of sexual violence and to work to prevent it. With this grant, we can advance research and knowledge, promote accuracy and sensitivity in how sexual violence is reported, inform policymaking at a national level, and strengthen support services. Investment in this work will help us create a better, safer society in Ireland while working to ensure that the rights and dignity of survivors/victims are respected at all times.”

The grant was made possible through a Donor Advised Fund held by The Community Foundation for Ireland.
