Whilst survivors of rape are being promised less invasion into their private lives, there are concerns that changes could in fact lead to an increase in requests to access therapy records. https://t.co/Tc8bOijmN0
Online Support Programmes
We are pleased to announce to launch of 2 online support programmes. Taste of recovery is a programme aimed at adults who have experienced sexual violence, focusing on the journey to recovery. This programme is designed for survivors who are open to our service and can be completed at any point in their journey.
We also have a specific course for parents/caregivers of children. This course is a series of videos that will aid parents and caregivers to support their children who have experienced sexual abuse.
