About the Sexual Violence Recovery Toolkit Programme

The Sexual Violence Recovery Toolkit has been written for individuals who have experienced acquaintance, dating, stranger rape and historic childhood sexual abuse / exploitation. It is an evidence-based programme that supports clients to be the expert and at the centre of their own recovery.

Based on the established Adult Domestic Abuse Recovery Toolkit, this programme is delivered over 12 weeks. It is a group programme that uses a trauma-informed and a psycho-educational approach to enable clients to move forward from the trauma of experiencing sexual violence. It supports participants to develop positive lifestyle coping strategies, restoring a sense of safety and enabling people to return to active citizenship.

Cardiff Sexual Assault Referral Center piloted the Sexual Violence Recovery Toolkit Programme, and continue to deliver the Programme. You can download the evaluation report here.

There are conditions attached to the Sexual Violence Recovery Toolkit Programme, as highlighted below. Following the training, the newly trained facilitator will be responsible for ensuring participants of their facilitated Sexual Violence Recovery Toolkit programme complete anonymised feedback forms about their delivery and the Toolkit programme and return them to Rock Pool. It will be standard practice for the facilitator to return an anonymised data return form to Rock Pool every time the Sexual Violence Recovery Toolkit programme is completed. This enables us to put some measurements in place, and we will be able to share the outcomes with all organisations who run the programme.
