Capita Conferences’ National Tackling Sexual Violence Conference is well-timed to address the current issues and challenges of investigating, prosecuting, preventing and supporting victims of adult sexual offenses and rape.
• Chair: Fay Maxted, Chief Executive, The Survivors Trust
• Martin Hewitt, Deputy Assistant Commissioner, Metropolitan Police Service and ACPO Lead for Adult Sexual Offenses
• Kate Davies OBE, Head of Public Health, Armed Forces and their Families and Health and Justice, NHS England
About the event:
Recent figures indicate that the number of rape cases being forwarded for prosecution is at a five-year low, despite the increase in reporting of these crimes to the police. With NHS England now responsible for commissioning sexual assault services, and £4m of Government funding allocated to establish independent rape support centres, this event provides the ideal forum to discuss these critical policy developments and learn how best to move forward our thinking and practice to ensure they are victim-centred.
Join police, criminal justice, health, local authorities and voluntary services involved in the sexual violence criminal justice pathway to network and share best practice. Attend to ensure that you are able to support victims at all stages, handle cases effectively and sensitively, bring offenders to justice, and take steps to prevent and reduce vulnerabilities.
