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 doesn’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.

We provide specialist support online, in person or by phone. Alongside this we can also give unbiased information on what your options and rights are and can help you make an informed decision about your 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. When our helpline is closed you can call the National Rape Crisis Freephone Helpline on 0808 802 9999. It is run by Rape Crisis South London and offers confidential emotional support, information and referral details.
It is open between 12:00-14:30 and 19:00-21:30 every day of the year, except Christmas Day and New Years Day. From Wednesday 5th January our confidential and anonymous helpline and email support services will be available on Monday, Wednesday and Friday 6pm to 9pm.
If you call us outside of these times you can leave a message, your name and a safe contact number and we will call you back in the next helpline session. The number is 01392 204174 or you can email support@devonrapecrisis.org.uk.

We believe nobody should have to cope with rape or sexual abuse alone.

Our support is for survivors of rape and / or sexual abuse aged 13 and over. We also offer limited support to the families, friends and partners of those affected by sexual violence.

My worker was there to genuinely listen and had great understanding.

Huge impact of nightmares almost completely going. I can cope with them now. I feel I have a future.

Feeling less frightened and more independent.

We are now offering some specialist support sessions in person, and the rest online or by phone. Please be assured that we have taken all reasonable steps to ensure the rooms we are using adhere to health guidance, which we continue to monitor. The safety of our service users, staff and volunteers is our top priority and we are doing all we can to continue providing services to all.
