Four new resources for families & friends

Four new resources for families & friends

To mark the 16 Days of Action Against Violence Against Women 2016, the Rape Crisis Scotland Helpline has launched new resources which seek to recognise and enhance the valuable support which survivors often receive from their family and friends.
Four new resources have been developed to highlight the impact of sexual violence on survivors and their supporters, with helpful ideas for supporting those who have been affected and self care tips for those with a supportive role. 
The series includes separate resources for Parents & Carers, for Partners, for Friends and for Young People who are supporting a friend. We are very grateful to the workers within the rape crisis network in Scotland who contributed to the development of these resources.
