Breaking the Silence but Keeping Secrets

April 24, 2014 at 9:19 AM

Dealing with sexual violence is a reality for many young people with nearly one in five New Zealand teens reporting unwanted sexual touching or being made to do sexual things that they did not want to. HELP and Tu Wahine commissioned this research to investigate the psycho-social service needs of young people who have experienced sexual abuse in order to support improvements to services for sexual abuse victims/survivors.

Join Tu Wahine and HELP in a conversation about the needs of rangatahi/young people following sexual violence. The day will include a presentation of the research and provide an opportunity to workshop solutions to some of the challenging outcomes. Solutions will be used to inform Stage 3 of the project, a national campaign for change.

When:   Thursday 8th of May

Where:  Hoani Waititi Marae, 451 West Coast Road, Glen Eden.

Read the agenda for the workshop.
