I am immensely proud of all the fundraising that was done by all for the Marathon – thank you on behalf of DRCSAS to everyone who helped.

Devon Rape Crisis and Sexual Abuse Services is recruiting for a Specialist Support Worker / EMDR Practitioner.

A member of our team is planning to raise money by running in the London Marathon next year.  Devon Rape Crisis and Sexual Abuse Services were lucky enough to win a place via the charity ballot and set out to find the right person to represent them. They didn’t have to look far. One of our Specialist Support Workers, Beverley Flavell, has run several half marathon’s and had always wanted to run in the London Marathon.

Devon Rape Crisis & Sexual Abuse Services will be presenting this training day on 11th June 2019 for staff and volunteers from statutory and third sector organisations.

The aim of the day is to increase the skills, knowledge and confidence of staff and volunteers supporting people who have experienced sexual violence in Devon.

The cost of the day, including all refreshments, is £95 per person.

A £15 per person discount is available for third & voluntary sector organisations, making it only £80 per person.

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"
