Support for rape, sexual assault and sexual abuse: Cornwall & Devon Independent Sexual Advisor (ISVA) Service

If you or someone you know has experienced rape, sexual assault or sexual abuse, you can contact the Sexual Abuse Referral Centre (SARC) for immediate crisis support.

In Cornwall and Devon, this is provided by the NHS. You can contact the SARC by calling 0300 3034626 or visit the website.

However, if you want to access support without involving the police or NHS, you can access our Independent Sexual Violence Advisor (ISVA) Service in Cornwall and Devon.

First Light employs experienced professionals who provide support and advocacy for victims of acute sexual violence and prolonged or historic sexual abuse. We support clients through any possibly criminal case, signpost to specialist organisations or support, or simply provide a safe place to listen and support you.

You can contact the Cornwall & Devon ISVA team on: 03458 12 12 12
