Supporting Rape Crisis Midwest

Who Are We? 

Since 1980, Rape Crisis Midwest has worked tirelessly to heal the trauma of men and women who have experienced rape, sexual abuse and assault. Rape Crisis Midwest offers support and counselling to survivors in a safe, caring and confidential space using a person-centered and empowerment approach.  Our head office is in Limerick, with part-time services available in Ennis and Nenagh.

Corporate Support

We welcome the opportunity to work with businesses and companies based in the Midwest who share our passion and commitment in tackling sexual violence and supporting those who have been affected. These opportunities can range from contributing to one-off events to taking on long-term roles within the organisation. Our many charity partners and supporters contribute to our work in a variety of ways. We view our relationship with our charity partners and supporters as a two-way process which is mutually beneficial. 

Corporate Supporters benefit through positive promotional exposure, increased employee satisfaction and enhanced community relationships. In return, we are able to raise the profile of our centre, building greater awareness and support within the community. Furthermore, we are able to avail of fundraising opportunities to ensure the ongoing functioning of the centre itself, as well as fund specific projects, small or big, which is all carried out here in the Midwest area.
