Training & Workshops

The Survivors Trust delivers training to member charities, government agencies, police, health professionals, employers and schools to promote sensitive and informed responses to survivors. Our training is underpinned by a wealth of knowledge that comes from decades of experience working across the sexual violence and abuse sector.

Take a look at the training opportunities below and if you have any questions email and our team will be happy to help. Please note, training can take place online via Zoom, MS Teams or face-to-face training can be accommodated according to preference and availability.

All TST training has been co-developed alongside survivors and people with lived experience to ensure survivors’ voices are represented in all our training and workshops. All our trainers have lived experience of sexual violence and are passionate about delivering trauma-informed training within a safe, inclusive and professional setting.
