LARA

Rape Crisis and Counselling Centre

LARA offers unbureaucratic assistance for women, girls and transgender people over the age of 14, who have been raped, sexually abused and/or sexually harassed.

LARA‘s counsellors will listen to you and take you seriously. They will offer you support irrespective of how long ago the sexual abuse occurred and who committed it.

You may choose to remain anonymous. We will not record your personal data if you do not wish us to do so. It goes without saying that we treat all information strictly confidentially.

Counselling is offered by telephone or in person. We will try to arrange an appointment for you as soon as possible. We offer counselling in English, French, Turkish and Polish. For other languages we arrange language mediators.

Our telephone hotline offers you rapid advice and support.

In acute crisis situations you can also come to us without a prior appointment Mondays to Fridays between 9.00 am and 5.00 pm. You may have to wait to be seen.

You can bring someone with you to the Centre if you wish to. Please note that men are not permitted to enter LARA’s premises during opening hours.

Free legal advice from experienced female lawyers is offered every Tuesday.
You can arrange an appointment via our hotline.
