Research carried out by Dr Hannah Bows, Centre for Research into Violence & Abuse at Durham University, identified that older women face specific barriers and challenges which make it difficult to access support, this includes a lack of awareness of services and confusion around who can help them. Rape Crisis Tyneside & Northumberland has been successful in securing funding to help tackle the barriers older women face and reach out to more survivors. This event will celebrate the launch of the project and be a chance to find out more about this subject. The event will feature a presentation and discussion: Sexual Violence & Older People.
This launch will consist of a networking session, followed by a talk/discussion with Hannah Bows and Margie Cooper about the SVAOW Project. Organisations are welcome to bring along their promotional material to have an information stall to share their work to other agencies.
