Rape Crisis Centre

Rape Crisis Centre is a NPO that provides psychiatric and psychological support and counselling for victims of sexual and/or physical violence.

Rape Crisis Centre has a vision of a South African criminal justice system that supports and empowers rape survivors in all of its interventions.

The centre provides assistance in the following areas: 

  • Psychological counselling; 
  • para-legal help; 
  • medical help; 
  • counselling around HIV testing; 
  • life skills projects at schools; 
  • support groups for rape survivors still attending school; 
  • research and monitoring at courts, 

Rape Crisis Centre also trains people in their communities about rape, domestic violence, HIV/Aids and post exposure prophylaxis.

Part of the centre’s mission is to act as a bridge between rape survivors and the system so that:

  • More survivors report rape
  • The number of rape incidents decreases
  • Survivors experience reduced secondary trauma within the system
  • The conviction rate of rapists increases thus providing a deterrent to rape

According to Lake Farm Centre PRO Conrad Steyn, every resident is a valued member of the group, which lives and works together harmoniously. 

“The more able help the weak and we are privileged to belong to this community with its capacity for tolerance, support and love.  Unfortunately, by worldly standards, these priceless qualities do not translate into money.”
