Strengthening participatory practice with children and young people affected by sexual violence
Our Voices is a programme of work coordinated by the International Centre: Researching Child Sexual Exploitation, Violence and Trafficking at the University of Bedfordshire.
Our Voices promotes the involvement of children and young people affected by sexual violence in research, policy and practice.
‘Peer support’ is recognised as an important part of a trauma-informed response, so why are we not seeing more opportunities for peer support among young people affected by sexual violence? This blog looks at some of the challenges and tensions identified in implementing peer support initiatives in this field.
