Every victim of sexual abuse has a different moment in their life when they feel ready to, or decide to, speak out and what triggers that moment is also different for everyone.
We know it can take decades to reach this point and just because you didn't speak out immediately doesn't mean that you have accepted what happened or that you shouldn't be allowed to feel a sense of justice now.
That feeling of justice can come in many forms and from the smallest step. It may be that speaking out about what happened could be enough to give you back the feeling of power. Or it could be that speaking out is just the beginning and getting advice on your options for justice is what you need.
It's a difficult step that you have to take and we understand that it involves an enormous amount of courage to come forward and tackle the fears and anxieties that you have probably had for years.
We hope that you can take some comfort from knowing that there is a huge amount of confidential support available and we can help you to access it.
You won't have to 'go public'. You have a legal right to remain anonymous and in the vast majority of cases, claims can be settled without having to go to court.
How we can help
We have helped many victims of sexual abuse and a common feeling among them is that facing their abuser and making them accountable for what they did helped give them back control of their life.
While money was never at the bottom of it, the financial compensation they were awarded did help them to make a fresh start and build for their future. We can help you too.
