Sexual Abuse & Sexual Violence Awareness week is the UK's annual week dedicated to bringing together organisations and communities to promote awareness of sexual abuse & sexual violence.

This year, TST joined hundreds around the country promoting the #itsnotok campaign during the week of action in February. We asked survivors, professionals and the general public to raise their voices and join us in saying that #itsnotok! 

To kick off the week of action, we attended the Light up the Night Walk across London Bridge with survivors and other support organisations to shout about sexual violence! Although the night was chilly, the atmosphere kept us warm. The walk ended with a poignant reading by a survivor on the steps of City Hall. 

We also spent the week completing free assemblies on ‘Understand the Principles of Healthy Relationships and Consent’ at local schools in the Warwickshire area. We did this in an effort to reduce the risks of sexual violence and sexual bullying for students aged between 11 and 16. We talked at 4 schools during the week and received a warm welcome from all.
