Learn more about the GRCC
The Galway Rape Crisis Centre (GRCC) is a non-governmental organisation (NGO) based in Galway City.
The Centre opened its doors in 1984, and since then we have provided counselling and support services to survivors of sexual violence and abuse in the West of Ireland.
Our services include a 24 hour call out service supporting survivors after recent assault or rape, Garda/court accompaniment, one-on-one counselling, education and training services, and much more.
The Galway Sexual Assault Treatment Unit (SATU) opened its doors in 2009. The unit provides a multidisciplinary response to sexual assault and rape. GRCC work alongside Gardai and medical staff to provide psychological support services for survivors in the context of the SATU. This is a 24 hour, 365 day a year service.
GRCC are able to provide this service only because of the generosity of spirit of our team of SATU support workers.
