Lyndy, Smiling DRCSAS volunteer



I decided almost five years ago that Devon Rape Crisis and Sexual Abuse Services was the right organisation for me to volunteer for because I wanted to make a full commitment to an issue that I felt deeply about and one where I could really make a difference.

What I hadn't anticipated is the enormous joy that I get out of being a member of such an amazing bunch of women volunteers who make me laugh and make me proud. In this supportive environment we manage to deal with difficult situations all the time, and this builds my confidence in helping women to know that they are not alone, we are there for them, and to help them find a way forward and cope.

I have learned such a lot over the time I have been a volunteer, both about the issues of sexual violence and about myself - what I am capable of and about the power of working together.
