For Children and Young People

Children & Young People

We understand that if you have experienced any form of sexual abuse you may want support. We are a dedicated and knowledgeable service who you can turn to. We have been built by children & young people for children & young people. We work in partnership with the Somerset and Avon Rape and Sexual Abuse Service (SARSAS for short).  We support children & young people aged 1-18yrs old who have experienced sexual abuse. If you are over the age of 13, you don't need your parent/carer's permission to access support. This part of our site explains what is on offer for you and feedback from other children & young people who have had similar experiences to you. You are not alone and we are hear to listen, believe and support you on your journey of recovery.
