Partners and Friends
If you are the partner of, or a friend of, a victim/survivor of child(hood) sexual abuse and seeking information on how best to support them – whilst also taking care of yourself –that can be a difficult place to be.
We know that some organisations offer emotional support to partners and friends – and we encourage you to look up www.thesurvivorstrust.org to see if such services are available in your area.
