In 2013 a diverse group of survivors of childhood sexual abuse (CSA) came together to establish this group.
We feel it is important that we create space for members to meet to support each other with day to day issues and impacts which stem from individual experiences of abuse. We recognise however that it can be too overwhelming to discuss individual details of abuse and so this is not the purpose of the group.
Although we have all had individual support, we have never had an opportunity to come together with other people who have endured childhood sexual abuse.
We want to create a warm, welcoming, environment that is safe. For us, this means it is important that the group is a confidential and non-judgemental space in which people can openly support each other as survivors.
Our weekly group provides an environment where you can feel accepted and understood. Members share thoughts and ideas, worries and achievements. It can provide a sense of belonging as well as an opportunity to learn more positive ways to manage.
