Independent Sexual Violence Advisers (ISVAs) in England, Wales and Northern Ireland – A study of impacts, effects, coping mechanisms and effective support systems for people working as ISVAs and ISVA Managers (May 2021)
Miranda A. H. Horvath, Hannah Rose, Thistle Dalton and Kristina Massey with Ioana M. Crivatu and Kasandra Matthews
LimeCulture have championed the role of ISVAs for a decade and as a national organisation, have worked hard to raise awareness of the vital support that ISVA services provided to victims/survivors of sexual violence.
To date, there has been limited research on the work of ISVAs, and LimeCulture has been delighted to support this important research, which focuses entirely on the work of ISVAs.
The research findings are extremely useful and we hope that the recommendations are taken forward nationally by MoJ, and locally by commissioners and services managers to continue to support ISVAs to carry out their important roles.
The findings were launched in May 2021 , the full report and slides are available at https://limeculture.co.uk/research/
