About the webinar:
On Monday 25th April 28 people gathered together in Middlesbrough at the MIMA Art centre for a four-day course on improving participatory practice for those working with young people affected by sexual violence. We would like to invite you to join to share an overview of this unique project and the participatory training which took place. You will see an overview of the training highlights, including some footage of young people’s input.
The training provided practical activities for participants to use with their colleagues and young people - to encourage active participation in their work settings. This training will be available on-line by the end of the project. There will be an opportunity to ask questions about the training and sign up for project news updates and resources.
