    Devon Rape and Sexual Abuse Helpline

    Rape and Sexual abuse
    There are many different kinds of sexual abuse. Rape or sexual violence is what happens when someone does not consent to a sexual act. Childhood sexual abuse involves forcing or enticing a child or young person to take part in sexual activities, whether or not the child is aware of what is happening. If you have been raped or sexually abused either recently or in the past, you can phone our helpline to speak to someone in confidence.

    How we can support you
    We provide a free, anonymous, confidential listening and support service which can help to relieve the trauma and distress of rape, sexual violence and childhood sexual abuse. Our service is for male and female people over 16 years who have been raped or sexually abused, either recently or in the past. We also offer support and information to families, friends and professionals requiring support and/or information. We are open 3 evenings per week, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday 7pm - 10pm.
