Outline of the project
This three-year Comic Relief and Matrix Chambers funded project is a user-led skills development and research programme that will lead to the design and piloting of an evidence-based, user-led training and awareness raising programme for professionals and service providers focusing on the impact of gender-related violence on refugee and asylum-seeking women (RASW) and the need for a gender-sensitive treatment of this group.
My name is Nick Faraday and I joined IARS on 30th September as the Projects Manager. IARS has many exciting and ground breaking projects that I am really excited to be a part of and to see explode and develop in multiple directions.
On the 30th of September 2013 General Meeting, IARS members unanimously elected five new Non-Executive Directors for the charity. Having being in operation for 10 years, this election signals an important step in IARS' future.
