Our Services

Peterborough Rape Crisis Care Group (PRCCG) was established in 1983 in response to a need amongst women and girls for a safe, confidential, non-judgmental support service. Since then, the charity has supported thousands of women and girls who have experienced any form of sexual violence at any time in their lives.

In partnership with our sister centre Cambridge Rape Crisis, we offer a range of services to survivors in Peterborough and Cambridgeshire that are free at the point of contact. Both centres are accredited members of Rape Crisis England & Wales, adhering to the Rape Crisis National Service Standards (RCNSS) which ensure the provision of consistent, high-quality, specialist services to survivors. We can also provide support and information to men and boys who have experienced sexual violence however these services are delivered separately from the provision for women and girls.

We accept referrals from any individual or organisation and all our services are free of charge:
