Get in Touch

For professionals

Somerset Phoenix Project is a small service providing support, training, consultation and signposting to professionals supporting children, young people and families affected by child sexual abuse (CSA).

Training & Events

Our purpose is to upskill frontline professionals who already have a relationship with children and young people affected by child sexual abuse (CSA). So they can improve the effectiveness of their support.


Consultation Services

A central part of the Phoenix offer is our consultation service for professionals seeking support to devise an effective action plan for young people impacted by CSA.

Our team can offer a specialist consultation tailored to the specific case this can be:

  • a multi-professional meeting relating to the child/family and involving key professionals providing support an individual consultation with a lead professional
  • a smaller systemic meeting of key professionals and parents/carers.

To request a consultation, please submit a request for support form
