Get help for you
If you are in danger, please dial 999 immediately or 101 in a non-emergency. If you ring 999 but can’t talk, make sure the Police know you are there by coughing or tapping the handset, or by dialling 55. Alternatively you can visit https://www.devon-cornwall.police.uk/ or www.wiltshire.police.uk/.
First Light is independent of any agency so you do not have to worry about the Police or any other organisation or person (including your family or friends) finding out about your abuse or assault. Neither do you have to have first reported to the Police to access our services.
Our staff will treat anything you say to them in confidence. We support everyone regardless of gender identity or sexual orientation. There are a number of circumstances when the law requires us to share information without your consent. Wherever possible, we will inform you when we do.
Please note: First Light do not provide the commissioned support services for domestic abuse in Devon, Swindon and Wiltshire or the Sexual Assault Referral Centre (SARC) in Devon and Cornwall.
