WMRSASC provides a free, confidential and non-judgemental service for male and female survivors aged 5+ who have experienced any form of rape or sexual abuse at any time. We recognise that the trauma caused by sexual abuse may not surface for many years after the event. WMRSASC is committed to raising awareness about the damaging effects that rape or sexual abuse can have on an individuals. WMRSASC offers both a face to face counselling service and an advocacy service that supports clients through the criminal justice system.They operate two telephone helplines covering the Worcestershire and Herefordshire areas. The helplines provide both crisis and ongoing support to survivors of any form of sexual assault, violence or abuse; be it recent or historic; and their family and friends.

RAG stands for 'Raise and Give' and that's exactly what we do. RAG is run by Student Committee who spends time organising fundraising events and other activities to raise money for nominated Charities. RAG supports students to fundraise for any registered charity of their choice as well as fundraising for their nominated charity. We also coordinate the Students' Union's efforts for national events like Red Nose Day and Children in Need.
