We represent Survivors at the Scottish Government Parliamentary Cross-Party Group for Adult Survivors of Childhood Sexual Abuse, meeting with other Survivor agencies and agencies with an interest in this area of work from across Scotland.

We are in regular contact with other Survivor agencies in order to share and transfer knowledge.
