DRCSAS are looking for volunteers!

Devon Rape Crisis & Sexual Abuse Services is looking for volunteers! Devon RCSAS is looking for women volunteers to represent our diverse community and join our team. No previous experience is needed, as training is provided, we just ask for passion and commitment! Devon RCSAS is a voluntary organisation that offers a range of free and confidential specialist support services to women (aged 13 years and above) in Devon who have experienced rape or sexual violence. We also provide a more limited range of support to young men. All volunteers will carry out support on the telephone helpline and Email Support Service either in Exeter, Torquay or Barnstaple and there is also the possibility of carrying out face to face specialist support in the area where they live. They will also need to attend the volunteer supervision and development meetings which take place once a month in Exeter. The training programme runs over 6 months and it is accredited by Ascentis Awards.
