About Wellington Rape Crisis
Wellington Rape Crisis was established in 1977 by a small group of women who identified, and responded to, a community need by creating a support network for women survivors of rape and sexual abuse. Today the centre is a fully Incorporated Society called Wellington Rape Crisis (Inc).
We operate with a volunteer Governance Group who are responsible for the strategic direction and financial oversight of the organisation. The Governance Group is accountable to our membership (click here for information about becoming a member of WRC).
The Agency Manager oversees the day-to-day running of the organisation and manages the staff who are:
Services Coordinator - providing social work support and oversight of the client services
Social Worker - providing social work support to survivors and their support people as well as education workshops.
Three contract counsellors - registered with NZAP or NZAC providing free counselling to women survivors or rape or sexual abuse.
Funding and Finance Coordinator - completing funding applications, assisting with fundraising and the organisations accounts.
Sexual Violence Prevention Coordinator - coordinating primary prevention programmes and other initiatives for the Wellington Sexual Abuse Network.
