Welcome to Devon Rape Crisis and Sexual Abuse Services.

We offer services in Devon (but not Plymouth).

We offer confidential, professional support to survivors of rape, sexual assault and childhood sexual abuse.

"There must be those among whom we can sit down and weep and still be counted as warriors"

- Adrienne Rich

 We offer this support over the phone, via email or face-to-face, at a pace that you are comfortable with.

Our support is for women aged 13 and over and young men aged 13-25. We also offer limited support to the families, friends and partners of those affected by sexual violence.

We believe nobody should have to cope with rape or sexual abuse alone.

It does't matter if the abuse took place yesterday or twenty years ago, we are here to help.

We are excellent listeners and we will always believe you.

Alongside our specialist support, we are able to provide unbiased information on what your options and rights are, helping you to make an informed decision about the next steps.

We really understand how difficult it can be to seek support - but getting in touch is the first step to coping with and recovering from what has happened to you.

We know that it can feel particularly difficult to come forward if you are a Black woman or from a minority ethnic background and we want you to know that we are culturally sensitive and anti-racist.

If you are a disabled woman, we want you to know that we are thoughtful and flexible about how we work so we can better meet your individual needs.

And we appreciate that if you are lesbian, gay, bisexual or trans you may be hesitant about whether you can use our service and we want to reassure you that you can.

Regardless of the employment or job you are in (for example if you are a sex worker) – rape and sexual assault is never an occupational hazard and you will receive non-judgemental support from us.

What People Say About Us

"I think EMDR has allowed me to process things far more than I was expecting, it was more effective than I was anticipating and I was surprised at how much different I felt after having it."

Service User

"DRCSAS has made a massive difference, I feel I have found myself – no longer just focused on what happened to me. I deal with things so much better and have a positive outlook on life that wouldn't have happened without DRCSAS."

Service User

"I feel positive about the future, being able to control my thoughts and emotions rather than them controlling me. I was sceptical at first wondering if it would work but I am amazed at the results. Would definitely recommend to anyone"
