Who we are

Basingstoke Rape and Sexual Abuse Crisis Centre [BRASACC] is a single standalone registered charity. Independent from any other similar organisation, we are not part of the police force or local government. We rely on grants, donations from the public and income from our training course and presentations to keep running.


ASK US

Rape, sexual assault or sexual abuse can happen to anyone regardless of their age, gender, race, religion, culture or social status or sexuality. Living with the consequences of rape and sexual abuse can be devastating. We believe that all survivors are entitled to receive the best possible response to their needs whether or not they choose to report to the police.

BRASACC is a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy [BACP], and we adhere to its ethical framework.

Everyone within BRASACC is fully trained to deal with your calls. The decision on whether you report an attack to the police is yours alone. We will support you whatever you decide.

Our Office Administrator, Crisis Line Volunteers and Volunteer Counsellors understand what rape and sexual abuse is all about. They are not shockable, they do not judge feelings or actions and they encourage you to express your thoughts and feelings whatever they might be. Our Crisis Line Volunteers and Volunteer Counsellors can:
