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.

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 to Mon to Friday 9am to 12pm with immediate effect.
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.
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.

What our service users say?
Offering me a place to talk and work through things that I feel are holding me back from a happier, healthier life.
More personal confidence and emotional stability. People noticing I am brighter, more cheerful and optimistic. Able to make strides towards bettering myself and my future.
I can sleep without fear (can't remember the last time I was too scared to sleep for nightmares, doesn't happen anymore!) - I have ways to manage my intrusive thoughts and I feel much less afraid.
