About us

First Light is a charity supporting people in Cornwall, Devon and Wiltshire who have been affected by domestic abuse and sexual violence.  In 2017 Twelves Company and Skoodyha merged to become First Light.  We are independent of statutory agencies, including the Police, and every year we help thousands of men, women and children in the South West to lead safer lives, free from violence and abuse.
