LimeCulture CIC is delighted to be hosting the 3rd Knowledge & Network Event for Independent Sexual Violence Advisers (ISVAs) on Thursday 28 September 2017. This major event for ISVA Services will be taking place in Manchester.
It is becoming widely recognised that ISVAs play an integral role in providing support and responding to those who have been raped or sexually assaulted. ISVAs have much to share about how to provide the best possible services regardless of whether they are located in the Third Sector, Sexual Assault Referral Centres (SARCs) or Statutory Agencies. ISVAs are part of an important workforce that is increasing in size and recognition. This major event will bring together professionals to share knowledge and provide a unique opportunity to network with other members of the ISVA workforce.
At last year’s National ISVA Conference, chaired by Sir Keir Starmer QC MP, LimeCulture introduced the LimeLight Awards to provide professional recognition for the amazing work that is undertaken by ISVAs throughout the UK. LimeCulture is keen to ensure that the outstanding contributions and achievements of these professionals who have demonstrated excellence, dedication and commitment to supporting victims of sexual violence through their work as ISVAs continue to be properly recognised through the LimeLight Awards.
There are 4 LimeLight Awards, divided into three categories:
- Awards for an Individual ISVA (2 separate awards)
- Award for an ISVA Team
- Award for an ISVA Manager
Anyone can nominate an individual ISVA, an ISVA Manager or an ISVA Team or Service by simply completing a nomination form- you can also nominate yourself or your own team. Nominations open on 7 June and close on 31 August 2017.
LimeLight Awards will be presented at a special ceremony at Knowledge & Network: An Event for ISVAs on Thursday 28 September 2017. More information about how to nominate can be found by clicking here
