We take the health and well-being of our service users, volunteers, staff and trustees extremely seriously and are continuously and closely monitoring developments surrounding COVID-19.
Providing survivors of sexual violence in Devon and Torbay with a safe and practical service is, and always will be, our primary goal. To ensure all survivors in Devon and Torbay are able to access support during these difficult times we are temporarily moving our helpline service from evening sessions to day time sessions and will be increasing the days it is available to 5 days a week; Mon to Friday 9am to 12pm.
The usual helpline hours will be closed this evening and the new helpline hours will commence tomorrow morning (19th March 2020) at 9am.
The email service also remains available 24/7 and should your email require a response you will receive this within 7 days.
As we monitor the situation and receive new advice things may change, however we will keep you updated on our Social Media pages and on our website where you can also find useful resources 24/7.
Whatever happens, we want victims and survivors of rape, child sexual abuse and all forms of sexual violence living in Devon and Torbay to know that we are still here and you are not alone.
