The NIFVS Partnership hosted a webinar on 14 September 2021 to explore how organisational leaders and practitioners can improve engagement with survivor advocates in order to strengthen practice responses and service planning.

The webinar enabled participants to:

  • Locate their thinking within the Experts by Experience Framework
  • Hear advice from survivor advocates on working collaboratively
  • Explore current practice in engaging survivor advocates in the northern metropolitan region.
