I am immensely proud of all the fundraising that was done by all for the Marathon – thank you on behalf of DRCSAS to everyone who helped.

Christiane Sanderson (BSc MSc) - Wednesday 5th September 2018 - 10am – 4pm - Belmont Chapel, Western Way, Exeter, EX1 2DB

Christiane is an experienced counselling psychologist, lecturer and trainer in psychology and counselling, with a particular interest in child protection, interpersonal abuse and trauma. She is Lecturer in Psychology at Roehampton University and London University, Birkbeck College, and consultant and trainer to both statutory and voluntary agencies, as well as a practitioner with 25 years’ experience of working with survivors of childhood sexual abuse.

Devon Rape Crisis and Sexual Abuse Services are pleased to bring Christiane to Exeter to help therapists and practitioners work effectively with survivors of abuse.

Devon Rape Crisis and Sexual Abuse Services is recruiting for a Specialist Support Worker / EMDR Practitioner.

A member of our team is planning to raise money by running in the London Marathon next year.  Devon Rape Crisis and Sexual Abuse Services were lucky enough to win a place via the charity ballot and set out to find the right person to represent them. They didn’t have to look far. One of our Specialist Support Workers, Beverley Flavell, has run several half marathon’s and had always wanted to run in the London Marathon.

Devon Rape Crisis & Sexual Abuse Services will be presenting this training day on 14th September in North Devon for staff and volunteers from statutory and third sector organisations.

The aim of the day is to increase the skills, knowledge and confidence of staff and volunteers supporting people who have experienced sexual violence in Devon.

The cost of the day, including all refreshments, is £95 per person.

A £20 per person discount is available for third & voluntary sector organisations when 3 or more people book on to the training at the same time, making it only £75 per person.

Devon Rape Crisis and Sexual Abuse Services presents a free public event: Jen Smith poses the question A CRISIS WITH CONSENT?

Thursday 4th May, 6.30pm-8.30pm 2017
Exeter Community Centre, 17 St David’s Hill, Exeter

The event will consist of a short presentation followed by questions and discussion.  We welcome everyone who is interested in safe and adult engagement.

Jen Smith is an MA student at the University of Exeter focusing on the social and structural foundations of sexual violence.

Alongside her studies she has also been working closely with Devon Rape Crisis and Sexual Abuse Services, Devon and Cornwall Police Communications unit and the University Guild.

In doing so, she has strived to connect the theoretical issues raised in her research to the practical issues.

Tickets https://www.eventbrite.com/e/a-crisis-with-consent-tickets-32693300542 

Whilst the event is free, we do suggest a donation of £5 on the door.

Left-wing, highbrow, feminist, atheist, comedian Kate Smurthwaite finally takes on the issue right at the heart of women's rights: men. And she's taken "getting inside the subject" to a new level - performing the whole show in drag as her male alter-ego Milo Standards!

It is truly amazing to consider, but DRCSAS celebrated its 5th birthday as a specialist agency last week.  
Volunteers, staff, trustees and patrons came together to celebrate the achievements of our first five years together.

There was an incredible atmosphere, as you’d expect from an organisation full of committed women; a real pride in the organisation we have built together and the quality and effectiveness of the service we provide.

Music was provided by Emily Jukes-Roblyn, cookery by the Exeter cookery school and the auctioneer for the evening, presiding over some very generous donations, was our patron Anna Walker MBE.

Special thanks to Stephens Scown LLP whose donation paid for the buffet.

What People Say About Us

"I think EMDR has allowed me to process things far more than I was expecting, it was more effective than I was anticipating and I was surprised at how much different I felt after having it."

Service User

"DRCSAS has made a massive difference, I feel I have found myself – no longer just focused on what happened to me. I deal with things so much better and have a positive outlook on life that wouldn't have happened without DRCSAS."

Service User

"I feel positive about the future, being able to control my thoughts and emotions rather than them controlling me. I was sceptical at first wondering if it would work but I am amazed at the results. Would definitely recommend to anyone"
