"Meeting the Minister of Justice"
Linda Regan, the Chair and Fee Scott, Service Manager had a productive meeting with Chris Grayling, Minister for Justice on 31st January 2013, organised by our wonderful patron, Sarah Wollaston MP. It was the Ministry that gave Devon Rape Crisis start-up funding in 2011 and still part funds the organisation so it was a good time to give the Minister an update on our progress. He was very impressed with how we had set up a new service from scratch and was genuinely interested in how our services are organised and delivered. He was particularly interested in the low reporting rates of sexual violence and keen on gaining our advice on the measures needed to help women feel more confident about reporting these crimes.
