DateTuesday 4th June 2019
TimeAll day
LocationExecutive Business Centre, Bournemouth University

This was a very enjoyable day and it was fantastic to hear from such a diverse range of speakers, as well as many willing attendees who shared their own perspectives. We really enjoyed the day and the feedback has been very positive.

There was some delicious freshly baked cookies to start the day, followed by some fantastic talks! We would like to thank Helen Stevens, Dr Jackie Farquharson and Dr Helen Bows for sharing their expertise.

This event will explore what is currently known about the scale of sexual abuse for
older people, exploring key research and practice developments in the field. This
event will bring together staff from key agencies to explore the topic and consider
future practice in this area.

Speakers to include:
Dr. Hannah Bows: Assistant Professor in Criminal Law (Durham Law School), Deputy Director of the Centre for Research into Violence and Abuse (CRiVA)
Jackie Farquharson: Dorset Victims Champion
Helen Steven: Service Manager STARS – Dorset Rape Crisis

After lunch there will be an opportunity to work with others to explore barriers to disclosure and ways of working effectively across agencies.

Places are limited for this free event and so early booking is recommended.
