A call to action.

Significant multi-agency work is required to tackle  this Social Taboo, beginning with mandatory training across all relevant institutions. Only by uniting together alongside victim/survivors  can we begin to break down social/professional barriers and restrictions which not only isolate victims, but shield and protect perpetrators of this crime.

Are we prepared as service providers and as individuals to walk beside victims offering a platform of truth. Being open and honest about this crime encourages victims break the silence. Are we prepared to stand beside victims or continue to turn a blind eye?

Are we willing to listen> hear> respond appropriately> take action> support safely>work in partnership/collaboration adopting a  shared learning approach
