Sexual Violence Against Older Women Project: Focus Group

Date and time: 

Wednesday, July 10, 2019 - 17:30 to 19:30



Margie Cooper has recently been appointed as the Community Engagement Officer on the Sexual Violence Against Older Women (SVAOW) project.

Margie says "My role is to raise awareness of the issues faced by older women and girl survivors of sexual violence.   The work will also develop community engagement initiatives that target older women survivors of sexual violence and provide training for professionals. 

One very important aspect of this project is to involve older women.   I plan to organise some informal group discussions to explore issues and learn more about how to tailor sexual assault services to meet the needs of older women.  

The group discussions will last for no more than 2 hours.  The first of these is being held at 5.30pm on Tuesday 10th July 2019.    If you wish to take part in a focus group or groups either complete the details on the attached form or  alternatively email me at
