Case Study – Women’s Rape & Sexual Abuse Centre
This week for our case study we are interviewing the manager of Women’s Rape & Sexual Abuse Centre, Sinéad Daly. Based in Dundee and Angus WRASAC supports survivors of rape, sexual abuse and exploitation by providing specialist services and support to help them recover.
We have evolved and grown since then. We are here to:
- support survivors who have experienced any form of sexual violence, abuse or exploitation in their lives.
- promote equality and raise public awareness of the routes of sexual violence and its damaging and life-changing effects.
Our Vision is for a world free from sexual violence, abuse and exploitation and a society in which everyone has equality, freedom and choices to live the lives they want and thrive.”
Our building does not have a disabled access; however, we do have access to other support venues nearby which we avail of.
We also support accessibility on other fronts by trying to provide interpreters if English is not your first language, providing support via Typetalk, email or letter if you are deaf or hard of hearing and we can also arrange for a British Sign Language or signed English interpreter.
If you have any particular access requirements or concerns, then please contact us and we will do our best to help.”
Additionally, because our building has limited accessibility, working with OOVIRT has allowed people to make their own decision on the accessibility of our building specific to their individual access requirements. OOVIRT worked with us to design the virtual tour and provided great insight based on their expertise in accessibility and VR.”
