Around one in every four adults experienced some kind of abuse as a child – this includes physical, emotional and sexual abuse as well as neglect.
We understand the varying affect that suffering childhood abuse can have on people. It is estimated that approximately 50% of those who suffered abuse as a child experience some kind of mental illness in to adulthood, such as anxiety, depression, post-traumatic-stress, self-harm or suicidal thoughts and issues with sleep.
However, support is available to help you move on from childhood abuse.
It doesn’t matter when or where the abuse happened, we can provide free, confidential support if you have experienced abuse as a child – regardless of if a crime was ever reported to the police or not.
Support for this type of crime is highly specific to your needs and can involve signposting or referring you to other agencies and services that can also offer help.
However you're feeling, speak to us.
