March 5, 2020 Research and Evidence Creating a safe space Ideas for the development of participatory group work to address sexual violence with young people BriefingsBy Camille Warrington Download Given that many barriers to group work in this field centre around ‘risk and vulnerability’ of participants, the first part of the toolkit was about ‘creating safe spaces’. This focuses on supporting facilitators and participants to think about how they could undertake participatory group work addressing sexual violence safely. The document that follows is part one of the toolkit and it builds on work from the earlier LEAP project – part of the Our Voices programme of work. This attempts to capture the Our Voices Too, and partners, learning about promoting safety and managing risk when undertaking group work in this field. The team consider it a working document and recognise that it will benefit from revision and refinement in the future. However, the team are sharing this resource to both document elements of the Our Voices Too project and to support wider learning and feedback on this topic.
