Update on our waiting list

Devon Rape Crisis and Sexual Abuse Services have taken the incredibly difficult decision to implement a temporary pause on taking new referrals for specialist support, therapy and EMDR from the 4th of March 2024 for three months. This is as a result of the charity continuing to see increased demand for support over and above our capacity. We will continue to support the hundreds of people we are currently supporting and those already on our waiting list during this time. Whilst this pause is in place we will continue to work hard to implement our new service transformation plan which we hope will broaden our support offer and assist with demand going forward. We want to remind everyone that our helpline remains open and can be accessed on 01392 204174 between 1800 and 2100 on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Our email service continues to run as normal which can be accessed via support@devonrapecrisis.org.uk. We will be keeping our website and social media channels updated and will provide more information when these waiting lists will open again for new referrals.
