Newly Launched: Older Victims of Crime Trainers and Educators Forum
With funding from the Office for Victims of Crime (OVC) and in partnership with the National Resource Center for Reaching Victims (NRC), NCALL has launched a new online forum for emerging and current trainers and educators in the crime victims field who focus on enhancing victim services for older adults, including older adults at the margins.
The forum is an interactive peer-to-peer exchange where professionals can:
- learn from each other;
- get feedback on new ideas;
- share educational and training resources;
- discuss helpful tips and tools to use in your training work; and
- make connections on training topics impacting older crime victims.
