General Crisis and Emergency Services
If you are unsure about what to do, or do not want to go to hospital by yourself or want help from someone other than a friend or family member, please contact us at the Canberra Rape Crisis Centre (CRCC) on 02 6247 2525. We provide crisis support through our telephone service between 7.00am and 11.00pm, 7 days a week every day of the year, including Christmas and public holidays.
We also have a Memorandum of Understanding with Police and the Forensic Medical Sexual Assault Care (FAMSAC) Service, whereby we can be contacted 24 hours a day to attend the hospital or police station and provide support to victims who report or need a medical/forensic examination during or outside normal business hours.
Our workers are trained in providing support, crisis counselling and advocacy, and we can help you through these processes and make sure your rights and wishes are heard and respected. We encourage you to speak with us, you have rights and sometimes talking to someone impartial can help you to work out what you want to do and we will support you in the decisions you make.
