The Scottish Women’s Rights Centre (SWRC) is a collaboration between Rape Crisis Scotland, JustRight Scotland and the University of Strathclyde Law Clinic. It is funded by the Justice Department of the Scottish Government, administered by the Scottish Legal Aid Board.
By working with a specialist solicitor and an experienced advocacy worker, the SWRC strives to fill the gaps that exist between women’s experiences of gender based violence and their ability to access justice. Informed by its direct work with victim-survivors of violence and abuse, it seeks to influence national policy, research and training to improve processes and systems, and ultimately to improve the outcomes for women who have experienced gender based violence.
Find out all about the SWRC at its dedicated website here.
As of 1 October 2017, JustRight Scotland is the specialist legal service provider for the SWRC and our solicitor, Jennifer Dalziel, works with our SWRC partners. Jennifer is a women’s rights expert with 9 years’ litigation experience. She provides legal advice, information and representation to the women who access the centre.
