A care worker is someone who performs activities in service of others. Rape crisis counsellors are one type of care worker. Others include childcare workers, teachers, nurses and other people who provide physical and practical care in times of illness, dependence, crisis, or emotional need.

What should a rape crisis counsellor earn every month?
Once the police bring a rape survivor to the hospital to be examined it is the rape crisis counsellor’s job to explain the process, accompany the survivor through the medico-legal examination, provide psychological first aid and ensure the survivor gets follow-up counselling. These counsellors usually work 12 hour shifts day and night.
