This is what parents and carers have said about our service once we have supported their child.
We understand that this can be a daunting time that you are going through following the discovery that your child has experienced sexual abuse. It can be for some a chaotic time that involves a number of agencies coming in and out of your lives. We want to offer hope to all those who might be in this position what a difference working with our service can make to your child. One mum kindly wrote this letter to us, it has been anonymised to protect their identify.
I just really want to say thank you so much for all your support and guidance. B has made great progress and become stronger. You have also helped me massively learn how I can best support and nurture B through her trauma. I'm very grateful for all the advice you shared with me. As a family we are all going to miss you in our own ways, but mostly I’m glad you gave B the gift of being believed. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
All my love and respect
