Hello and welcome to TRC
Free support - for women, by women - in relation to incidents of rape, sexual abuse or unwanted sex no matter when or where it happened.  We will listen, support and believe you.

Getting support

  Phone us: 0800 783 4608
The phone helpline is open:
Tuesday evening: 6pm to 9pm
Thursday evening: 6pm to 9pm
Sunday afternoon: 3pm to 6pm

Black Asian and minoritised ethnic (BAME) women's helpline:
0800 434 6484
 
If you would prefer to speak to a black or Asian woman, our BAME phone line is open: 
NEW TIMES:
Thursday evening: 6pm to 9pm
Friday morning: 10am to 1pm
Sunday afternoon: 3pm-6pm 

On 1 July 2015 we made some changes to the Helpline because we wanted to make sure that all women and girls who need our service have a fair chance of accessing it. Call to our helpline numbers from all phones, including mobile phones, are free from that date, so we discontinued the facility to request a callback.  Instead, please phone us during the helpline hours.  Please do keep trying if you have trouble getting through, as we may be speaking to other women - we will answer as soon as a volunteer is available to talk to you.  

 
Email us: dorothytrc@hotmail.co.uk
 or if you'd prefer to email a black or Asian worker, dorothy.bme@hotmail.co.uk
You can send us an email at any time of the day or night and we will write back as soon as we can. If you are feeling bad and want to just type out the feelings then don't worry, that's fine, send them to us. You can email us as often as helps you. We reply as soon as we can, usually within two to three days. 

   
Drop Ins
We are running regular Drop Ins on a Friday (11.30am-1.30pm) over at the Women and Children's Centre in Sale (33 Cross Street) where you can have a cuppa and a chat, relax and learn new skills such as how to make small cushions or soap. It's free! 

Please contact us for more details.
