Their words, however, can be found in the Hear Her Voice eBook below.
The aim of Hear Her Voice is not just to have survivors’ voices heard; it is to empower and amplify these voices so that they are a force for meaningful societal and legislative change. To this end, the Women’s Aid Federation of Northern Ireland has created Survivor Engagement Principles.
The purpose of this is to guarantee that a woman has a voice throughout her journey: from the moment she walks through the doors of Women’s Aid, to at whatever point she feels that support is no longer required, a woman will have a voice and agency.
The eBook and Survivor Engagement Principles can be found below. We wish to the thank the survivors and staff throughout Women’s Aid Northern Ireland who contributed to the eBook and the survivor engagement strategy.
