Our values will apply to our behaviour with actual and potential service users, staff, volunteers, Trustees and partner agencies.

Feminism

We believe that sexual violence is both a cause and a consequence of gender inequality. By being a strong, proud and active feminist organisation we engage with issues with a spirit of hope and a determination to fight for women to receive the justice they deserve as a right.

Trust

We work transparently and honestly so that we are trusted and viewed as an organisation with integrity.

Respect

We treat women with dignity by acknowledging their background, life story, skills and resilience.

Equality

Equality is a fundamental human right and we recognise that women experience disadvantage and discrimination because of their gender, class, sexuality, ethnicity, religion, impairments or age. We are committed to equality and inclusivity and oppose discrimination in everything we do.

Choice

Women are disempowered by their experiences of sexual violence. Offering women choice is fundamental to how we work.

Quality

Women deserve a high quality, professional organisation and we provide this in all that we do.

What People Say About Us

"I think EMDR has allowed me to process things far more than I was expecting, it was more effective than I was anticipating and I was surprised at how much different I felt after having it."

Service User

"DRCSAS has made a massive difference, I feel I have found myself – no longer just focused on what happened to me. I deal with things so much better and have a positive outlook on life that wouldn't have happened without DRCSAS."

Service User

"I feel positive about the future, being able to control my thoughts and emotions rather than them controlling me. I was sceptical at first wondering if it would work but I am amazed at the results. Would definitely recommend to anyone"
