Survivors of sexual violence are being encouraged to share their views of the support they received in order to help improve the experiences of others as part of an inquiry which aims to enhance services across Merseyside. The Sexual Violence review has been commissioned by the Office for the Merseyside Police and Crime Commissioner, in partnership with NHS England to examine the extent and nature of sexual violence in the region, map the services which are available to support those who have been subjected to such crimes and ensure they are easy to access.
The review which is being carried out by Liverpool John Moores University’s (LJMU) Public Health Institute, is reaching out to survivors to hear about their journey following an incident, including how they were treated within the criminal justice system and the extent to which the support they were offered met their needs.
Anyone with personal experience of sexual misconduct, such as harassment, sexual exploitation and all forms of sexual violence are asked to TAKE PART HERE
The survey is completely anonymous and confidential and will be open until mid-April.
