Innovation Project - Bristol Sexual Violence Support Consortium

The innovations project for the Bristol Sexual Violence Support Consortium is hosted by Voscur and grant-funded by the Lloyds Bank Foundation for England and Wales to run until May 2019. Voscur contribute expertise in collaborative working, link to the wider voluntary and community sector and employ the Consortium Innovations Manager, Jennifer McMahon, to coordinate the project.

The consortium, established in 2015, builds on over 20 years of experience from four organisations: SARSAS (Somerset and Avon Rape and Sexual Abuse Support), Womankind Therapy Centre, Barnardo’s Against Sexual Exploitation (BASE), and The Green House.

Together, the Consortium have developed a theory of change, which outlines their work in the innovations project and the impact they intend to make.

In the first six months, partners have already seen the value in a facilitated collaborative project:

"The project is going well and Jen is an excellent manager. I feel sure that nothing will be missed; it is well organised and thorough." 

"Voscur's role as a neutral base has been a critical part of the success of the project".

"There is good communication between us, with realistic deadlines for information to be provided".
