Support during the Holidays
22 December 2020
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.
Please know that Dublin Rape Crisis Centre remains here & ready to help anyone who needs support in the aftermath of sexual violence.
