Survivor Steering Group
A new steering group led by survivors of sexual violence and abuse in Birmingham and Solihull will inform RSVP’s work and support us to achieve our mission:
To support people who have been subjected to sexual violence and abuse to thrive and enjoy a future of hope and confidence.
We boldly stand with survivors and challenge victim-blaming attitudes.
We are looking for individual survivors to join this new group, to influence strategic and operational decisions about RSVP’s future direction, services and other areas of the organisation.
- You are currently using or have used RSVP’s services in the past (even if for a short time).
- You share RSVP’s values of bold, big-hearted belief in all survivors
- You are age 18 or over (we are developing a separate under 18s steering group, email for info).
- You are willing to attend meetings, read notes and take an active part in the group. Meetings will be a blend of in-person at our Birmingham office, and virtual.
Please note that there is no requirement or expectation for you to discuss any details about the violence and abuse you have been subjected to. This is not a therapy or support group.
This is a paid opportunity. We are looking for people to commit to attending monthly meetings (approx 1.5 hours, plus meeting preparation).
If you are interested in taking part, please read the documents above in full, complete the brief application form and submit by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you would like to arrange a discussion, please email Lisa Thompson email@example.com
