It's Safe to Say
"What has happened to you?"
Silence cements abuse in place
Everyone has the right
to be heard and believed
After a childhood of sexual abuse, I am rebuilding my life through Trauma Therapy
and with the peer support of Survivors Unite - Les Newington
There’s more than anger, more than sadness, more than terror, there’s hope.
46 year old survivor.
We train staff who may work with people who have survived Childhood Sexual Abuse (CSA) and other traumatic experiences. All of the training courses will enable staff to ask the question and respond sensitively and with confidence when dealing with disclosures of CSA and traumatic experiences.
We act as Consultants in Trauma Informed Support, equipping organisations to engage with people with a history of trauma. This will enable staff to recognise the presence of trauma symptoms and behaviour and respond accordingly.
AND NOW FOR SOMETHING DIFFERENT!
We are proud to be partnering with the Heroine play – OPENING TOMORROW as part of the Fringe, it is a moving and true story of a gay woman’s life experiences in the American army – we will support any audience member triggered by the contents of the play which is another aspect to the services we provide at Safe To Say.
We strive to offer free or subsidised training courses to staff working with survivors of child sexual abuse within community settings. These courses equip staff to work with confidence and sensitivity with disclosures and self-harm, identify vicarious trauma and maintain wellbeing. We also have four very powerful documentary films, two of which have won awards, on working with survivors. We have previously organised raffles and are now asking you to support us by becoming a friend of Safe to Say.
