Rape Crisis Network Ireland (RCNI) is the national representative body for Rape Crisis Centres in Ireland.

The RCNI role includes the development and coordination of national projects, supporting Rape Crisis Centres to reach quality assurance standards, using our expertise to influence national policy and social change. The RCNI is a national information and resource centre on all aspects of sexual violence, with a proven capacity in strategic leadership including contributing and advising on the necessary infra-structure for a national response to all aspects of sexual violence.

Recently we launched, Rape and Justice in Ireland: a national study of survivor, prosecutor and courts response to rape. This is the most extensive piece of research ever conducted into the responses to rape in Ireland. It adds the next layer of evidence to our knowledge about sexual violence Ireland.
