About us

Devon and Cornwall SARC provides help and support after rape or sexual assault for people in Devon, Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly. We do this through our sexual assault referral centres in Exeter, Plymouth and Truro.

We offer medical assistance, forensic assessment, guidance, support and access to an Independent Sexual Violence Advisor (ISVA) through a single point of contact at 0300 3034626 or by filling in a short referral form.

All of our staff are specially trained to support people who have been sexually assaulted.

We know that often patients want to recognise specific members of staff who they feel have gone the extra mile for them.

What to do if you have a complaint

As well as being told when we do things well, we also need to know when things don’t go so well. When this happens you can support us by letting us know what the problem is as soon as possible.

We hope that the relationship built up between you and our staff will enable you to raise any issues or concerns you may have with them directly. It is quite possible that they will be able to sort out the problem straight away.
