Funding boost for Argyll and Bute Rape Crisis

Argyll and Bute Rape Crisis recently received an Awards for All grant from the Big Lottery Fund, which will allow them to continue to provide information and support for those affected by sexual abuse.

The award of £8550 will allow the service to develop a new and enhanced website and distribute supporting materials to pupils at local secondary schools to inform young people aged 12-18 years old of their existing youth project, TESSA. The aim of this new aspect of the project is to disseminate information to young people in more accessible and appropriate ways in order raise awareness of the issues of sexual abuse, harassment and sexual bullying.

The project met the Awards for All outcomes of ‘Communities are safer, stronger and more able to work together to tackle inequalities’ and ‘People and communities are healthier’.
