About First Light
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.
Our lifesaving work is only made possible by our incredible funders, donors and partner agencies.
As a growing organisation, we’re often on the look-out for passionate, determined and committed people to join our team.
We deliver a range of training programmes and can make bespoke programmes to suit your needs.
