Frontline Focus Is Back
Raising Awareness of Sexual Violence - Putting a Spotlight on Front-line Workers
For Sexual Violence and Sexual Abuse Awareness Week, Frontline Focus, brought to you by New Pathways, aims to:
- Raise awareness and open conversations about sexual violence
- Showcase some of the work that is being done in Wales to protect, prevent and support people affected by sexual violence
- Better equip front line workers to support survivors.
Date and time: Thu, 9 February 2023, 13:30 – 15:45 GMT
This event is for front-line practitioners who work directly with victims and survivors of sexual violence, but who aren't directly in the VAWDASV (violence against women, domestic abuse and sexual violence) sector, such as education, health and social care, housing, justice, youth work, both statutory and charitable.
