LimeCulture CIC is pleased to be hosting the 2nd Knowledge & Network Event for Independent Sexual Violence Advisers (ISVAs) on Wednesday 28 September 2016. This national conference taking place in Manchester will be chaired by Sir Keir Starmer MP, formerly the Director of Public Prosecutions.
ISVAs play an integral role in providing support and responding to those who have been raped or sexually assaulted. Whether our ISVA services 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. ISVAs have much to share about how to provide the best possible services. This major event will bring together professionals to share knowledge and provide a unique opportunity to network with other members of the ISVA workforce.
As a committed supporter of the ISVA workforce, LimeCulture CIC 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 is properly recognised. LimeCulture is delighted to announce that they will be introducing new awards, to be known as the LimeLight Awards, to provide professional recognition for the amazing work that is undertaken by ISVAs throughout England and Wales.
We are introducing 4 LimeLight Awards, divided into three categories:
- Awards for an Individual ISVA (2 separate awards)
