Looking at attitudes – survey!

We are currently gathering information about societal attitudes towards sexual violence.  We are keen to hear from as many people as possible so please feel free to spread the word and share the link below.  We’re also on facebook where the survey can be accessed through our page.

We know about societal attitudes nationally but we really want to examine the local position.  This information helps us identify key issues which we need to address and informs the decisions we make about local work and campaigns.

All responses are anonymous.

Thank you from everyone at RASAC P&K.
