On 17th November 2018, Rape Crisis Tyneside and Northumberland will turn 40! Throughout 2018 we will be hosting a range of fundraising events to raise £40,000 to help us continue doing vital work supporting women and girls who have experienced sexual violence.

We have spent the past forty years operating in Newcastle, and during that time expanded into, Northumberland, supporting women and girls who have experienced sexual violence.

Sadly, our services are still absolutely essential, we’ve expanded in recent years to offer our services to girls over 13 years old (previously 16 years old) and we now also offer practical and emotional support, as well as a telephone helpline, ongoing email support and face-to-face counselling; as well as supporting colleagues, training other professionals and working to end sexual violence full stop.

In 2018, as we turn 40, we recognise more than ever the need for our services, in order to continue supporting women and girls across Tyneside and Northumberland we must continually fundraise. That’s why, in 2018, we are setting an ambitious target to raise £40,000 in a year to mark our 40th year.

Throughout the year we will host a range of events; think, parties, conferences, a firewalk, music events, a cabaret event, comedy nights with some big names, outdoor challenges, fetes and films and much much more. Everything we do this year will contribute towards our £40,000 target.
