The Report and Support Team are running a series of workshops to mark national Sexual Abuse and Violence Awareness Week 2023. We have focused on one theme a day throughout the week, in a bid to raise awareness around these topics, generate discussion among our community, and break down the silence and stigma that often surrounds sexual abuse and sexual violence, with the ultimate aim for survivors to feel empowered to disclose their experiences and access support.
