CARA (Centre for Action on Rape and Abuse) works with victims and survivors of sexual violence and child sexual abuse, providing independent, specialist support and promoting and representing their rights and needs.

CARA is a registered charity working with adult women and men, young people (aged 13-19) and children aged 12 and under from across mid and north Essex.   We provide our services from our head office in Colchester and from outreach premises in Braintree, Chelmsford, Clacton-on-Sea and Great Dunmow.

 

Services for women can be provided in a women-only environment, on request.

At present, we are only able to deliver our play therapy services for children aged 12 and under from our Colchester premises.

If you are a victim of any type of sexual violence you can access our services by:
