Falkirk Waiting List Open
Forth Valley Rape Crisis Centre is happy to announce that we have reopened our waiting list to survivors from the Falkirk area. It has taken us 6 months to reopen the waiting list.
While we are relieved that we have been able to open the waiting list, the reality is that we still have one. We would like to be a service that doesn’t operate waiting lists but we are still very vulnerable to finding ourselves in the same position again.
We have been able to open the waiting list primarily through increased capacity due to funding from Falkirk council as well as the Scottish Government towards tackling waiting lists. These funds are welcome but are not enough. So we will continue to fundraise to ensure that our service is able to offer survivors support when they need it.
We would like to thank all our supporters who campaigned, lobbied and donated to us. We count on your continued support. Our biggest gratitude of course is to survivors who have been affected the most by this situation, we thank them for their patience with us. We hope that those who were unable to receive a service from us during this period will get in touch.
