The Dublin Rape Crisis Centre (DRCC) is an independent not-for-profit organisation that aims to prevent the harm and heal the trauma of rape, childhood sexual abuse and other forms of sexual violence.

We are funded by government, through grants and through public donations. Each and every donation we receive helps us achieve our aims.

In all our fundraising activities, the DRCC is committed to

Honesty and Transparency – We publish an annual report and our audited accounts on our website.

Effective Governance – The Board of Directors is responsible for ensuring good governance systems and processes are in place, that all legal duties under charity law and, as much as possible, that best practice standards are met.

Commitment to Privacy – The DRCC is committed to ensuring that we keep your data safe, whether you are a client, donor, volunteer or other stakeholder. Click here to read our Privacy Statement
