Women from Devon are planning another large gathering against sexual violence on the streets this winter. The Reclaim the Night events are designed to promote public awareness about the levels of violence and harassment experienced by women and girls on our streets.
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 14th September in North Devon 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 £20 per person discount is available for third & voluntary sector organisations when 3 or more people book on to the training at the same time, making it only £75 per person.
Please support us by buying a ticket for the new Torbay Lottery.

Devon Rape Crisis and Sexual Abuse Services presents a free public event: Jen Smith poses the question A CRISIS WITH CONSENT?
Thursday 4th May, 6.30pm-8.30pm 2017
Exeter Community Centre, 17 St David’s Hill, Exeter
The event will consist of a short presentation followed by questions and discussion. We welcome everyone who is interested in safe and adult engagement.
Jen Smith is an MA student at the University of Exeter focusing on the social and structural foundations of sexual violence.
Alongside her studies she has also been working closely with Devon Rape Crisis and Sexual Abuse Services, Devon and Cornwall Police Communications unit and the University Guild.
In doing so, she has strived to connect the theoretical issues raised in her research to the practical issues.
Whilst the event is free, we do suggest a donation of £5 on the door.
Left-wing, highbrow, feminist, atheist, comedian Kate Smurthwaite finally takes on the issue right at the heart of women's rights: men. And she's taken "getting inside the subject" to a new level - performing the whole show in drag as her male alter-ego Milo Standards!
The Bike Shed Theatre, Exeter
Sunday 14th May
Show starts at 7.30pm
Followed by Q&A
Tickets cost £12 / £10
"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."
"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."
"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"
