The Staff & Board of the Dublin Rape Crisis Centre wish you and yours a very Happy & Peaceful Christmas. While Christmas can be a very special time for so many, here in the DRCC, we know this time of year and also higher #Covid19 restrictions may be very difficult for those who have survived sexual violence.  Please remember no matter how recent or how long ago the abuse or assault, support is available.
