Lobby Liverpool Council to reinstate funding to Liverpool Rape Crisis sign now

We the undersigned call upon Liverpool City Council to reinstate the funding to Liverpool Rape Crisis. We understand that Liverpool is facing massive budget cuts, but also acknowledge that the service provided by Rape Crisis Liverpool far exceeds the money provided and the numbers of those who have benefited far outweighs the financial commitment.

RASA has been in Liverpool since 2008 - previously all Liverpool clients either travelled to Wirral or waited until there was space at our 1 day a week counselling service
