Answer for Rape Crisis (5)

Answered By: 
The Mayor

GLA officers have been working closely with Ealing council officers to share knowledge and information that will assist them in developing plans for the new centre in Ealing.

Whilst I want to ensure that the new centre is opened as quickly as possible, both I and Ealing council are determined that we get this right I do not wish to take any short cuts or rush things due to political pressure.

It is vital that this new centre meets the needs of women and girls experiencing the significant effects of sexual violence. We are therefore, working very closely with Rape Crisis, England and Wales and other experts in the field to ensure that the centre does just that.
