Survivor views on a future Scotland
As the Referendum approaches, Rape Crisis Scotland is keen to seek the views of survivors on what they would like responses to sexual violence to look like in a future Scotland. What needs to change? What would really make a difference? If you’d like to let us know what you think, please visit this short online survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/TZSMSVG This consultation comes in the context of debates around independence, and RCS is keen to ensure that survivors' views are represented in this debate. Rape Crisis Scotland does not hold a position on the outcome of the Referendum, and the results of our survey are solely intended to inform discussions with politicians and others on survivor priorities for a future Scotland. The survey includes questions on three specific areas (the justice system, support services and public attitudes & culture) as well as a space for commenting on what respondents feel is the biggest priority in general - and any other comments they may have.

Research into Deaf and disabled young people's experiences of Child Protection
Talking about Child ProtectionThe University of Edinburgh, led by Professor Julie Taylor, with partners from Strathclyde and Coventry Universities are undertaking a NSPCC funded research study exploring the experiences and views of maltreated deaf and/ or disabled children and young people about Child Protection Services. This issue has not been explored from the perspective of deaf or disabled children and young people before in the UK, so it is hoped that the study will provide valuable lessons about how services can better protect and support them. The research team will be interviewing deaf or disabled people over 11 years old from across the UK who have either experience of the child protection system, or who may have been abused but did not access services. Interviews will be made accessible according to the person's individual needs....
