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.
Please note our helpline will be closed on Monday 2nd May because of the spring Bank Holiday.
Our confidential and anonymous helpline and email support services are available on Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 6pm to 9pm.
Call us on 01392 204174 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
When our helpline is closed you can also 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.

How We Can Help
Confidential, professional support to survivors of rape, sexual assault and childhood sexual abuse in Devon.
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.
What our service users say?
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 didn't even realise how much stronger I was actually capable of being and how insecure I had felt, how much blame and criticism I was putting on myself.
Offering me a place to talk and work through things that I feel are holding me back from a happier, healthier life.
