"I thought their visit was a great opportunity to ask questions and learn more about their practice particularly around instilling expectations and boundaries but with a flexible and person-centred approach. It was great to hear that they have adapted the way they work to help educate their police colleagues and that they are helping to improve people’s knowledge and language surrounding sexual violence. "
