What is the Church Resource Centre against Violence and Sexual Abuse? What is Adam?

Have you been subjected to intimate partner violence by your boyfriend or have you been raped by a friend – maybe someone from your congregation? The Church Resource Centre against Violence and Sexual Abuse foundation helps both women and men, and provides training courses for professionals and church employees.

The Church Resource Centre assists adult women and men who have been subjected to abuse and harassment. The Church Resource Centre offers clarification counselling in order to address experiences of domestic violence, abuse and harassment through individual sessions, group sessions and church services, and has a nationwide support network.

The centre also offers education, advice and assistance in dealing with abuse cases, and engages in advocacy to make church settings better prepared to address and respond to all forms of violence and abuse. The foundation’s particular focus is on preventing violence and harassment.

The staff speak Norwegian. Help is also available in English. Arrangements can be made for an interpreter.
