Walk the walk

Sexual violence is a global issue, with thousands of agencies working with survivors each and every day. We believe if we begin to work together, share our experiences, knowledge and best practice then we can create a more powerful response to sexual violence.

Supported by Rape Crisis and Northern Rock Foundation, this is first national conference of it’s kind. Walk the Walk will bring together some of the leading figures from within our sector, bringing skills, experience and expertise all under one roof. The full day event will explore:

– The role of partnership working in reducing sexual violence
– How to meet the needs of survivors
– Lessons learned to date
– What is working now (best practice from the UK and Australia)
– The way forward

– Carolyn Worth, Director South Eastern Centre Against Sexual Assault (SECASA)
