***TRIGGER WARNING**

Imagine having been attacked, violated - perhaps by someone close to you, perhaps on a night out. Maybe it was years ago and you're only just now getting the courage to talk about it.

The NSW Rape Crisis Centre desperately needs funding or it will close. It's the only state-wide, 24/7 service for anyone - male or female - who has experienced or is at risk of sexual assault. For years it's been doing an excellent job, guiding people through the mire, assisting victims giving evidence at the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse and helping the NRL overhaul its attitudes to women.

Now due to the loss of a major government contract, the NGO may have to liquidate in order to pay the redundancies of a large number of staff.

Let's tell the Federal and State governments that we want our crisis service saved!

If you need to talk, you can contact the NSW Rape Crisis Centre on 1800 424 017 or you can visit the website http://www.nswrapecrisis.com.au/
