A centre for education and victim support and rehabilitation services of child sexual exploitation, rape and abuse. To help women and girls to deal with trauma in a safe way to go on to lead a for filling life. We have the professionals qualified to offer the help and services, we just need a building.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
Sexual violence is linked to PTSD and without mental health provision due to cuts and historically low prosecutions, many victims turn to substance misuse, risk taking behaviours and can fall into re exploitation including prostitution. These young people have been failed by the system and we don't want them to be failed again. We want to create a safe centre where they can be supported with their trauma, coping strategies and healthy relationships in the future. To help their families. To help professionals improve their services.
