This is the second Focus on Survivors Conferenfce, where we will be launching our follow up research 'I'll be a survivor for the rest of my life' - Understanding adult survivors of childhood sexual abuses' experiences of support services.

The conference aims to bring together all those involved in delivering or commissioning services for survivors of childhood sexual abuse (including practitioners, commisioners, statutory & VCS providers) to better understand and improve the journeys that survivors navigate.  We are aiming to generate interactive discussions, networking opportunities and promote examples of excellent and innovative practice.
