LimeCulture to Host Event to Launch New Research Findings on the Work of ISVAs

Over the last 18 months, an important research study looking at the work of Independent Sexual Violence Advisers (ISVAs) has been conducted by Middlesex University and Canterbury Christ Church University with support from LimeCulture.

The study focuses on the impacts, effects, coping mechanisms and effective support systems for people working as ISVAs and ISVA Managers in supporting victims/survivors of sexual violence across England, Wales and Northern Ireland. 121 ISVAs and ISVA Managers participated in the study and provided invaluable contributions.

The study’s findings are now ready and the report is due to be published on Wednesday 12 May 2021. The report contains a number of important key recommendations based on the findings that ISVA Service providers, Commissioners and Policy Leads will want to consider.

We will be hosting a launch event on Wednesday 12th May from 1 – 3pm. The event is free of charge and will be held online (using the Zoom Platform).

LimeCulture would like to invite all ISVAs, ISVA Managers, Commissioners and Policy Leads to attend.

If you would like to attend and hear more about the research and the accompanying key recommendations, please book a place using the online booking system by following the link below





Bookings Open for the National Sexual Violence Liaison Officer (SVLO) Conference 2021

LimeCulture is delighted to share that we are hosting the National Sexual Violence Liaison Officer (SVLO) Conference on the 8th July 2021. The event will be held online.

As with the first SVLO Conference in December 2019, we will be highlighting some key learning and developments from across the sector and further afield, as well as acknowledging the outstanding contributions and achievements of SVLOs through our LimeLight Awards.

LimeCulture’s view is that SVLOs/SVMLOs and their services deserve to be properly recognised for the important, challenging and professional work they do to support those in the University community who have been subjected to sexual violence.  The LimeLight Awards are intended to be a first step in the direction of professional recognition of SVLOs and SVMLOs and their services.


Although the content of the day will be tailored towards supporting and informing SVLOs and other University sexual violence support workers, the sessions may also be valuable for a broader range of professionals working in the University and/ or sexual violence sector.

Please do book on if you feel as though it could be useful for you, and feel free to make contact with us if you have any questions or concerns at this time.

Details of the agenda will be added over the next few months; however, the day will start with a welcoming address, followed by plenary sessions specifically focused on disclosure and reporting processes in the role of the SVLO.

Moving into the afternoon, there will be an opportunity for attendees to attend smaller Elective Workshops, focused on more specific areas of working in the context of sexual misconduct in Higher Education. These workshops will give attendees an opportunity to ask questions and discuss with specialists in the field, as well as share best practice with colleagues, in a smaller group setting.

After the Elective Workshops, there will be further plenary sessions and opportunities to ask questions and share best practice with colleagues.

The Conference will conclude with our LimeLight Awards. More information on the LimeLight Awards to follow soon!
