Project Details


This four-year project involves a series of studies designed to draw together a range of evidence to inform future service design and delivery to best meet the needs of survivors of sexual violence. Two Cochrane reviews consider the evidence for most effective psychosocial interventions for survivors. A mapping workstream looks at how sexual assault assault referral centres (SARCs) do ther work and are configured at present. A two-year cohort study with nested qualitative study considers the health and wellbeing and cost trajectories of survivors who have used a SARC. All of the work is supported and guided by a lived experience group of survivors of sexual violence.
