SAY Womens Annual Conference 2019

Challenging Attitudes to Child Sexual Abuse and Homelessness

We'd love you to join us at our Conference for a full day of talks and discussion exploring the relationship between Child Sexual Abuse and Homelessness: specifically attitudes which perpetuate victim-blaming.

Our conference will highlight trauma-informed practice, values, attitudes and models that support SAY Women's working practices. We'll be involving professionals, practitioners and young people to showcase ways in which related communities can speak out about Child Sexual Abuse and Homelessness and the impact it has on individuals, communities and society.
