Cleveland & Redcar Rape Crisis: Kay Davies and Helen Danks – Group Award Nominee – 2007

Kay and Helen, as individual women and within Cleveland & Redcar Rape Crisis, have been tireless in raising awareness of sexual violence against women and girls. Their major achievement was awareness-raising, across a five year period, with the eventual outcome of painstakingly re-establishing secure rape crisis services within Cleveland/Teeside after the closure of Create in 2002. They have also made a huge contribution to the new EVA (Emerging from Violence and Abuse in Redcar and Cleveland) which was launched in June 2007.
