Wellington Rape Crisis and Sexual Abuse Prevention Network AGM

Last week Wellington Rape Crisis (WRC) held their AGM at the Wellington Chocolate Factory. WRC is the lead agency in the Sexual Abuse Prevention Network and Fiona McNamara, Coordinator at SAPN, spoke about our primary prevention work over the last financial year. It has been a busy year for SAPN having successfully run over 60 programmes in the Wellington region, reaching over 1300 participants and further work towards the safer bars initiative.

Alongside this, Tess, Janiece and Michael from Active Wellington talked about their experiences of workshops held by SAPN to educate them about respectful, not respectful and abusive relationships. The speakers were enthusiastic about the workshop space in the new office and the range of activities involved in their learning. It was great to hear such positive feedback from our workshop participants.

The AGM was an excellent opportunity to connect with people in our community who share the same passion for ending sexual abuse.
