Orkney Rape Crisis Service opens

Orkney Rape Crisis is now up and running, following its recent launch event in Orkney Library. At the launch, Zelda Bradley, support and development worker, talked about the number of sexual crimes reported to police in Orkney and the kind of services which survivors want and need.

Although Orkney is one of the safest communities in Scotland, those who experience sexual violence need discreet and private support. This is what the new service provides.

There was a good turnout from organisations and individuals to support the new service. This included Sandie Barton, national co-ordinator of Rape Crisis Scotland, Linda Gray, support and development worker for Shetland Rape Crisis, Sandra Paton, service manager of Women’s Aid Orkney, NHS Orkney health promotion, health visitors and education guidance staff.

The new service gifted ‘Woman to Woman: an oral history of Rape Crisis in Scotland 1976-1991’ to Orkney Library.
