Spring 2019 YSHM Network Event: We’re listening!

A professional’s networking event exploring the theme of sexual violence.


Sexual violence impacts all communities; with 30% of victims telling someone in an official position (not including victims who told the police) and a 14% increase in the number of sexual offences recorded compared to last year, we aim to:

  • Explore how you can support patients or clients through this difficult time.

  • Build your skills, knowledge and confidence.

  • Improve your professional response and make new contacts to support you in your role.

The session will cover the nature and prevalence of sexual violence, common myths, an overview of the Sexual Assault Referral Centre (SARC) process, reporting and referral pathways, safeguarding summary and integrated sexual health service information.


Join us for our networking events on:


Tuesday 26 March 2019, 10am-1pm at The Derby Conference Centre, DE24 8UX


Thursday 4 April 2019, 10am-1pm at St. Barnabas Centre, Clay Cross, S45 9BU

(Registration, tea/ coffee will be from 9.30am).


Book your FREE place online here or contact us on 01246 515730. Limited places are available, booking is essential.


*Disclaimer*: This is a networking and themed overview and awareness raising event to support you in your role, not a training session. The content at event will include discussion and information on sexual violence, which you may find upsetting.
