Devon Rape Crisis

I met with representatives from Devon Rape Crisis to hear about the lack of services for victims of rape and sexual assualt across Devon. Whilst there are nationally recognised services for those subject to domestic violence through ADVA, the same is sadly not true for sexual violence for which the only access to help is a free phone helpline staffed 7pm to 10pm on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.

I will be campaigning for Devon Rape Crisis to be supported to set up similar facilities to those already available in Cornwall, with support available to all victims of these crimes.
