Have you ever wondered how you would respond if someone told you they have been sexually abused? Has anyone ever talked to you about an experience with sexual abuse or rape?

Statistically, everyone knows at least one person who has experienced sexual violence. It’s hard to know what the “right” thing to do or say is when someone discloses sexual violence. Knowing how to respond matters; studies have found that a positive response to a disclosure can significantly impact the survivor's health and happiness.

Galway Rape Crisis Centre facilitates training in responding appropriately and compassionately to disclosures of sexual violence. This training is appropriate for all members of society and is especially relevant for professionals, those working in community organisations, school and college staff and third-level students.

Today is #InternationalDayofEducation. With that in mind, throughout the day we will be posting about the different education and training programmes we provide.

Galway Rape Crisis Centre facilitates training and education programmes for various groups, organisations, and workplaces. We work towards ending cultural and societal tolerance of sexual violence through advocacy, awareness raising and education programmes.

The training and education programmes we deliver aim to further our mission of reducing the incidences of sexual violence by creating awareness around the issues related to sexual violence. Our aim is to create a culture in which sexual violence is not tolerated, and those who experience sexual violence are met with compassion and understanding.
