Free training for interpreters in sexual violence support settings

Interpreters need education and support to become familiar with the language, reporting process, services, and impact of sexual violence on victims and their families. 

Participants in the 2018 workshop highlighted their interest in enhancing skills/knowledge in the area of sexual violence . This was shown through feedback published in the recent Interpreting DV Report 2018.
