TOAH-NNEST prides itself on being available for media comment or discussion. Please contact our National Office, our team will ensure that you are directed to an appropriate specialist spokesperson. We ask all media to consider the following guidelines when reporting on issues about sexual violence to refer to Reporting Sexual Violence in Aotearoa, New Zealand. To access our recent media releases.
The function of crisis support services responding to sexual violence perpetrated against adults and young people is to mitigate the psychological impacts of that sexual violence so that the survivor's psychological, social, physical, economic and spiritual well-being can be restored. While this has been done from a "grass roots" perspective for the last 30 years, advances in science mean that we can now link what we do to the expanding evidence base. It is in the interests of survivors that our work is informed by this evidence. In addition, funding streams are increasingly requiring such links between evidence base and practice. These Guidelines are intended to present the knowledge and skill of the sector in relation to what we know works, responding to survivor needs and experiences. All information is available to you via the above link.
