Devon Rape Crisis and Sexual Abuse Services

We offer confidential, professional support to survivors of rape, sexual assault and childhood sexual abuse in Devon.

It does't matter if the abuse took place yesterday or twenty years ago, we are here to help. We are excellent listeners and we will always believe you.

 

Alongside our specialist support, we are able to provide unbiased information on what your options and rights are, helping you to make an informed decision about the next steps.

We really understand how difficult it can be to seek support - but getting in touch is the first step to coping with and recovering from what has happened to you.
