We’ve just had a fascinating, informative and empowering time at the Rape Crisis England and Wales national conference, an annual event. At CSASS, we benefit hugely from being part of the Rape Crisis national network, sharing best practice, ideas and guidelines. CSASS has just been through the Rape Crisis external review process, and has been accredited once more as adhering to their National Service Standards. So at the conference, it was fantastic to participate in workshops about the best ways to deliver different types of support; about how to carry out effective outreach work; about campaigning. We learnt and shared lots, and people loved our ‘Silence isn’t always golden’ posters and top tips beermats.
Here’s a couple of interesting videos we were shown by Coventry Rape and Sexual Abuse Centre at their great workshop:
