Ishara has been working with Glasgow Rape Crisis Centre and Shakti Women's Aid to provide information about child sexual abuse.The See Me as Me! information session was held in February 2013 on this sensitive topic to create awareness for deaf ME people. Information was given on what children are told and how we can take better measures to protect children. The session was well attended and everyone involved felt more information is needed. Thanks to Pav Sandhu at Glasgow Rape Crisis Centre and Mridul Wadha at Shakti Women's Aid for all their support!
Deaf Connections already has an existing successful partnership with Rape Crisis Scotland who have translated much needed information about sexual violence into BSL for the deaf community. The information is also translated into other community languages. This can be found at Rape Crisis Scotland
