1 in 5 women experience sexual violence and there are few specialist services, although lots of agencies are providing fantastic support.
Voices of Survivors is a Lloyds Bank Foundation funded partnership between three of Greater Manchester women’s charities: Manchester Action on Street Health (MASH), Manchester Rape Crisis and Trafford Rape Crisis. We are working closely with Manchester Metropolitan University to research the needs of female survivors of sexual violence and exploitation. The aim is to ensure that voices of the women are heard and, by bringing together a variety of frontline agencies, to create a network of high quality support across Greater Manchester. We believe that by listening to the voices of survivors and coming together as organisations that work with women we can make a real difference to the support offered to female survivors.
We are inviting women across Greater Manchester to have their say by completing the online questionnaire which takes 15-20 minutes to complete. Printed copies are also available for women who would prefer to complete the questionnaire in writing.
