About Doncaster Rape & Sexual Abuse Counselling Service (DRASACS)

Doncaster Rape and Sexual Abuse Counselling Service (DRASACS) is an independent charity that has been helping victims of sexual violence since 1987. We are not part of the Police, NHS or any other public service.

Our aims are:

  • To relieve the distress of people who have suffered from rape or sexual abuse, in particular by providing a counselling and advocacy service
  • To relieve the distress of people supporting and/or caring for adults or children who have suffered from sexual violence
  • To advance the education of the public and other professionals, by raising awareness of the issue of sexual assault.

We are a highly professional organisation adhering to the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) ‘Ethical Framework’ for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy.

All our staff members are appropriately qualified, undertake continuous professional development, regular clinical supervision and have enhanced DBS clearance.

DRASACS is a member of The Survivor’s Trust, a national umbrella agency for over 130 specialist rape, sexual violence and childhood sexual abuse support organisations, and we have also achieved The Survivor’s Trust Service Standards.
