“Wexford Rape Crisis is a client-centred support service for those who have been affected by domestic, sexual or gender-based violence, including women, men, young people (age 12 years upwards) and all persons of different sexual or gender identities”.
Violence and sexual abuse in relationships must always be viewed as an abuse of Human Rights. It should not be rationalised or minimised and there must never be an acceptable or tolerable level of violence. Anyone can be a victim of Domestic, Sexual or Gender-based violence, irrespective of age, race, income or employment status.
Underpinning all aspects of the work of Wexford Rape Crisis is an ethos which offers support, empathy and understanding. We provide a non-judgemental, empowering and compassionate service which facilitates healing and recovery.
Through our counselling service, advocacy and awareness-raising work, we aim to support our clients by:
In 1995 The Wexford Rape & Sexual Abuse Support Service was established as an indirect result of the Kilkenny Incest Investigation, providing a free counselling service for survivors of domestic, sexual or gender-based violence and their families in the Co. Wexford area. The service quickly expanded as more and more survivors sought counselling. With the increased numbers, outreach services were developed in Gorey, Enniscorthy and New Ross.
In 2019, the service was rebranded as Wexford Rape Crisis.
Wexford Rape Crisis is a member of the Managers’ Forum of Rape Crisis.
Our counsellors are professionally qualified and accredited to relevant recognized Accreditation Bodies.
