A COUNSELING & ADVICE, CHARITY & CHURCH WITHOUT WALLS

Our main service is Counselling and Advice without walls for all people from age 14yrs & above, from all races & religion but mostly the black & ethnic minority group. Who are in confusion, in shame, and fear of more humiliation and whom to talk to, with an understanding of their cultural background. Thereby, they are left with emotional/mental scars, feeling unloved, powerless, angry, confused, guilty, frightened, worthless, dirty, isolated and finding it hard to trust other people.

 RAP was formed to break the chain of events in the life of victims of Sexual, emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual abuse.

RAP helps victims directly or through an organisational referral with a legal framework & total confidentiality. But firstly as a victim of abuse, you have to:

  • Recognise and acknowledge that you are going through abuse.
  • Accept you are not to blame but the abuser who hurt you is wrong.
  • You are not alone, every one has gone through one form of abuse in a Lifetime & is best to deal with it and not allow abuse deal with you
  • Know your rights to be safe to say no, not to deal with it yourself, not to keep abuse secret, to be helped to stop the abuse.
  • Seek help and support from friends, family and organisations like us.
