Testimonials

"In 2015, Professor Emma Bond was involved in our groundbreaking partnership survey of Adult survivors of Child Sexual Abuse from across the UK, which detailed survivors experiences of services and highlighted new and critical information which impacts the way services are delivered and survivors are understood. In 2017, we are working together again with Professor Bond’s team conducting in depth interviews with survivors to ascertain their personal experiences of services and journeys towards effective intervention. This work will be launched later this year with a national conference in 2018 and we are confident it will be seen as innovative, responsive research which will be used by commissioners and service providers to improve their response to adult survivors of sexual abuse across a complex and often difficult to navigate system. This work is genuinely driven and informed by survivors themselves who have been involved at every stage of planning and inception - an ethos that Professor Bond and her team are wholeheartedly committed to and together we are ensuring that the voice of the survivor is listened to, believed and respected."

- Survivors in Transition
 

"As an integral aspect of our work with the Money Advice (MAS), in April 2018, Dr Olumide Adisa concluded a twelve month evaluation of our financial capability service, working with survivors of domestic abuse. The evaluation offered invaluable insights, additional learning and a firm evidence base from which to further help survivors of abuse. The results evidenced the implications for reducing repeat victimisation in domestic abuse.  The evaluation also incorporated a Knowledge Exchange Workshop which the University of Suffolk hosted, the workshop involved a range of interested parties and used the emerging findings to share the learning and to stimulate further interest .The financial capability work was delivered via the What Works Funda national fund administered by the MAS. As such, the work delivered in Suffolk and the results of the research undertaken by the University of Suffolk has significant potential to influence the delivery of money advice, work with ‘hard to reach groups’ across the UK."  

- Anglia Care Trust
 

"In 2013, Professor Emma Bond and her team undertook our most important research to date to establish the need for a national training programme for frontline professionals working with children harmed through the internet. The results of the research provided us with the clearest picture yet of levels of confidence and competence among professionals working in this field, which we have been able to address through the development and delivery of training packages. As a consequence, the research carried out by Professor Bond is having a direct impact upon the support given now and in the future to victims of online sexual abuse. In addition, her department has provided expertise to us in areas ranging from ensuring engagement by visitors to our website to supporting our involvement in a Government-led education campaign surrounding indecent images"
