Standards

The information available here is for the Trustees of Rape Crisis North East.  No other individual, agency or organisation is permitted to view or access this document without prior authorisation from the RCNE.

The RCNI has developed a Quality Assurance Framework with associated Quality Assurance Standards.  RCNI member RCCs have signed up to the Framework and Standards as part of the RCNI Membership Criteria.

Rape Crisis North East Standards reflect survivor-centred and trauma-based best practice.  The areas covered include governance, direct service provision and social change work.  These are now the standards to which RCCs can be held accountable.
