To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many rape crisis centres there are in each police force area in England and Wales (a) in absolute terms and (b) per thousand population. (157762)

There are currently 37 rape crisis centres across England and Wales, affiliated to the national umbrella organisation Rape Crisis England and Wales.

The following table shows the location of each of these rape crisis centre in relation to each police force area. We do not routinely collect information on rape crisis centres per thousand of the population.

There are many other voluntary sector organisations working with victims of rape and sexual assault that are not affiliated to Rape Crisis England and Wales.
