In Ireland about 300 women are diagnosed with cervical cancer each year.  It is the second most common female cancer in Europe.  Cervical cancer screening involves a smear test, carried out by a doctor or nurse. The smear test looks for early changes in the cells of the cervix, which could lead to cancer if not found early.  Smear tests are important because you don’t usually have symptoms when you have abnormal changes in the cells of your cervix. A smear test is the only way to detect these changes, and this could save your life.

The mission of the Rape Crisis Centre is to prevent the harm and heal the trauma of rape and other forms of sexual violence.  Their work to prevent sexual violence includes research and policy work as well as awareness raising campaigns.  They also deliver training for critical service providers to ensure that the needs of survivors of sexual violence are met.

When sexual violence does occur, the RCC is there to support those affected with a National 24-Hour Helpline, face to face counselling, accompaniment and referral services.  They also provide training to professionals working in the area of trauma, as well as delivering sexual violence prevention programmes to young people.
