We are the Rape Crisis Centre for Sussex, based in Brighton & Eastbourne. We believe that no one should be alone when they have experienced sexual violence. We have a counselling service and a peer support group for female survivors of sexual violence, and a helpline/email support and advocacy service for survivors of all genders. We also offer support to children and young people of all genders.

You can refer yourself to any of our services through our website, here: or by calling our Office on 01273 203380 or emailing

Our Helpline & Email service supports survivors of any gender aged 14+ who have experienced sexual violence and/or abuse, no matter when or how it happened. Supporters of survivors (such as parents, friends, or partners) of any gender can call for support and advice. Professionals of any gender can also call. We offer emotional support and signposting.

Our Helpline opening hours are Mondays from 7-9pm and Wednesdays from 12-2pm. ​You can call the helpline on 01273 720 110 and speak to a trained female volunteer or staff member for up to 30 minutes.

You can email at any time, for a reply during Helpline & Email support hours on Mondays and Wednesdays.
