We are supporting our clients via zoom, phone and email and our office team is operating remotely.
If you need support, contact: 04 801 8973 or support@wellingtonrapecrisis.org.nz

Important 2020 Annual Appeal Update

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic and public health advice, we are erring on the side of caution and acting to minimise the risk to both our staff and our volunteers by postponing the street collection portion of our Annual Appeal.
Our first priority is to our clients, many of whom are vulnerable and at increased risk; and we have made this decision in order to ensure our team is able to continue supporting our clients in their healing process.
 
We will still go ahead with an online appeal for donations, along with Change from your Chair workplace collections and any fundraisers which have been organised on our behalf.
 
We encourage you to please donate, ask your friends to donate and to share our posts on social media!
 
Please fill out the form linked below if you would like to:
– Bring ‘Change from your Chair’ to your workplace
– Run a fundraiser during our Appeal Week
More information about these initiatives is below.
 
You’ll hear from us ASAP to confirm the details of your fundraiser or ‘Change from your Chair’. Please feel free to get in touch with our Annual Appeal team at wrcappeal@gmail.com if you have any queries.
 
Thank you for your support!

We have moved!

WRC are happy to announce that we have moved office!
We are now located on Level 4 in the Maritime Union of New Zealand Building at 220 Willis St.
Our new location has provided us with a beautiful new space; which includes 2 new counselling rooms (6 in total) with soundproofing, a larger kitchen and offices to accomodate an increase in staff.
The space is beautiful, airy and well lit, and we are excited to gradually update the furniture and fittings in our counselling rooms.
If you would like to donate to our PledgeMe campaign to furnish our space, please click here: https://www.pledgeme.co.nz/projects/6005-help-wellington-rape-crisis-move-to-our-new-office
We look forward to showing you our new space!
