About Suffolk Rape Crisis
SRC is a specialist, feminist sexual violence service run by and for women.

SRC provides a range of person-centred services to meet the needs of diverse women in Suffolk, including counselling, outreach, helpline and online support. SRC also takes part in both local and national feminist activism, including coordinating the annual Ipswich Reclaim the Night March.
Our Vision: A world free from sexual violence and gender inequality.
Our Mission: To work as part of a worldwide movement to ensure that women and girls experiencing any form of sexual violence in our community are able to access needs-led, specialist support. At the same time we will challenge the underlying attitudes that allow sexual violence to continue.
