Say Women, established in 1991, are an organisation working to provide safe accommodation and related services for young women who are survivors of childhood sexual abuse, rape and sexual assault, who are threatened with homelessness.
They have a wealth of knowledge in this area and are now offering training to other organisations, so that workers can feel confident in supporting young women who may be facing these issues.
The training responds to the needs of survivors, workers, organisations and strategic bodies:
All of SAY Women’s training reflects and contributes to the ScottishGovernment’s Equally Safe strategy priorities.
Scottish society embraces equality and mutual respect, and rejects all forms ofviolence against women and girls.
Women and girls thrive as equal citizens: socially, culturally, economically andpolitically.
SAY Women's interventions are early and effective, preventing further violence andmaximising the safety and well-being of women and girls.
Men desist from all forms of violence against women and girls and perpetratorsof such violence receive robust and effective response.
SAY Women’s training provides a thorough understanding of Housing First andtenancy sustainment; firmly recognising that CSA is a housing and homelessnessissue and that women’s housing needs are unique and different.
