We are working on a new website! We hope to reveal our new improved site soon! Watch this space!
Our vision for Devon is to be a county where people who have had to flee from their homes in other parts of the world can find the protection they need, rebuild their lives in safety and dignity, and achieve their full potential.

19 March 2020 – Important information about the current Coronavirus outbreak
Due to the ongoing situation with Covid-19 and recent government advice we have decided to close our offices and work remotely from Friday 20th March until further notice.
All staff will maintain their usual hours of work and can be contacted by email and telephone as normal. Support to clients will be maintained using these methods by staff and a limited number of volunteers. We have developed an internal strategy that should enable us to continue working without too much difficulty, but as with this virus, things are changing all the time and we appreciate everyone’s understanding and support. We shall of course send updates should our situation change.
Please do continue to contact us through our usual numbers and emails and accept our apologies if it takes longer than usual to respond during this testing time.
Take care and stay safe
Annette and all the team at RSD
