Angus Violence Against Women

Introduction to working therapeutically with trauma (sexual violence) Training Event • Wednesday 17th November 2021 • 1.30pm – 3.30pm via MS Teams

Gender inequality is a root cause of violence against women and girls. Gender-based violence is committed disproportionality by men against women and covers a range of violence and abuse.

Dundee and Angus Womens’ Rape & Sexual Abuse Centre is a member of AVAWP. They are a specialist agency in Angus that offers a free, confidential service to all women that live in Dundee or Angus. They have a Dundee and Angus Young Survivors Project that provides support to anyone aged 11 to 18 who lives in Dundee or Angus who has experienced sexual abuse of any kind.

WRASAC team will lead the training.
