Sharing Stories

 

A group of young people who have used the services of the Sexual Abuse Referral Centre have launched their booklet and film about ‘Sharing Stories Sharing Strength’. Hannah Mart, Children and Young Peoples Advisor (CYPSVA) said: “The whole process can be traumatising from the initial disclosure through to talking to the police and going to court and we saw how the young people we supported could be role models for others; sharing their journey, informing, advising and helping each other to survive sexual violence. These are the stories you don’t often hear, yet often people feel the same. It’s 100% their words about expressing the feelings and making it known that sexual violence is survivable.”
