In Devon and Cornwall, First Light operates two Sexual Assault Referral Centres with 24/7 crisis worker support and follow-on cope and recover services. Independent Sexual Violence Advocates (ISVAs) support people through the criminal justice system.

In Plymouth people are also offered therapeutic interventions in the form of counselling for adults, art therapy for children and pre-trial therapy prior to Court.

Also in Cornwall, First Light delivers the Domestic Abuse service for the county. Independent Domestic Violence Advisors (IDVAs)  make victims safe by assessing risk, implementing safety plans as well as offering advice and support. Staff are based in the Risk Evaluation and Coordination Hub in Truro, throughout the county co-located with the police, in hospital and the Special Domestic Violence Courts.
