This evening, which took place at the 2014 RIBA Sterling Prize nominated Benzie Building, featured presentations, poetry, music and visual works by survivors of violence.
Dr Kate Cook led the evening presenting her current work including investigations into the support provided to women by independent sexual violence advisors. Police and Crime Commissioner for Greater Manchester Tony Lloyd was also in attendance and said a few words.
‘My colleague and I were overwhelmed with the seminar and would like to say thank you to all involved in putting the evening together.’
‘It was refreshing for us, as health professionals, to view the issue from a very personal perspective and we felt the speakers were incredibly brave and very eloquent.’
‘It has helped to enhance my mind set and will influence my future professional practice as a result.’
‘Thank you to all once again.’
