Sexual Violence and The Legal System: Online Training

October 28, 2022

This training day has been designed to develop participants’ knowledge and understanding of our legal system in relation to matters such as childhood sexual abuse and sexual violence, and what may arise when someone has reported such a crime to the police.

At Survivors’ Network we offer specialist independent support to survivors throughout the criminal justice process, so are able to offer unique, trauma-informed insights to what can be unfamiliar and sometimes seemingly complex processes.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the law concerning sexual offences
  • Understand options of reporting such crimes to the police
  • Understand what happens in the criminal justice system
  • Understand the effects of the criminal justice system on survivors of sexual offences
  • Learn about possible supportive measures available

Who is this course for?

The course is for anyone wanting to learn more about the way in which the systems in place responds to survivors of rape and sexual assault, and how these crimes may be dealt with.

This may include: frontline staff working with clients including healthcare professionals, social workers, frontline workers including benefit, welfare and housing staff, youth workers, education staff, therapists, counsellors, people working in the voluntary sector, or those operating in such fields at management level.
