The Survivors Trust has a long history of developing and delivering person-centred training to the sexual violence sector and beyond. We are one of only a few organisations in the UK that provides an accredited diploma qualification for Independent Sexual Violence Advisers (ISVAs), both for the practitioners themselves and for managers that run an ISVA service. The Survivors Trust contributed to the development of National Occupational Standards for the ISVA role in 2015 and have trained around 300 individuals trained since 2020.
The Survivors Trust is an accredited training centre with AIM. You will gain an accredited qualification once you have completed our ISVA Practitioner or ISVA Service Manager programmes.
We offer 2-day online Children and Families Independent Sexual Violence Adviser (ChISVA) training for anyone who has completed ISVA training. A ChISVA is an advocate who can provide support to anyone aged 3-18 who has experienced rape, childhood sexual abuse or sexual exploitation.
The Independent Sexual Violence Adviser (ISVA) Service Manager Programme has been specifically designed to provide key learning outcomes and course material to ensure participants are equipped to meet the requirements, demands and challenges of delivering effective ISVA practice and provision for working with victims and survivors of all forms of sexual violence and childhood sexual abuse.
Independent Sexual Violence Advisers (ISVAs) provide emotional support and guidance for anyone that has experienced sexual violence at any point in their lives. Our accredited training focuses on a survivor focused ethos, meaning that we train our ISVAs to have their clients needs at the centre of all of their work.
