Training for professionals

OSARCC provides the only specialist holistic service in Oxfordshire for women and girls who have experienced any form of sexual violence. We also offer training to professionals who may work with survivors of any gender, in order to share our expertise and ensure that survivors are met with the best response possible by as many agencies as possible:

  • Charity and voluntary work
  • Health and social care
  • Housing and accommodation
  • Legal and law enforcement
  • Recruitment and HR

We regularly host multi-agency and in-house training courses around Oxfordshire (see below), but are also able to offer bespoke sessions in-house, tailored to your specific organisational context and needs.

For a no-commitment consultation about your training needs, get in touch with our Training Coordinator either by emailing or by phoning 01865 725311.
