OSARCC offers training to professionals who work with survivors of sexual violence in the local area. We host multi-agency training days around Oxfordshire but are also able to offer in-house sessions depending on the number of delegates from your organisation attending.

In addition, we are able to build bespoke training packages if you require materials tailored to your organisation and workplace.
