Supporting recovery from childhood abuse

The damage caused by child abuse doesn’t always end in childhood. We offer support to adult survivors and training for those who support them. We run support groups when there is funding to do so.

We are here for you

Support line 0808 801 0331

We’re taking calls from 10am until 9pm Mondays to Thursdays, and 10am until 6pm on Fridays

We are a very small team and it can be difficult to get through. Please try at different times rather than re-dialling repeatedly as our team dedicate time to finish each call. We offer 30 minutes of supportive listening with signposting if that is relevant to your needs, but we cannot offer on-going support or counselling.

We also offer support by email - support@napac.org.uk
Please call our support line if you need to talk to someone soon, and try at different times if you have difficulty getting through.

For survivors

Abuse happens in many different ways, but behind every type of abuse is a misuse of power and control. You can start to repair the damage and reclaim your life.

For professionals

Adult survivors of child abuse often don’t receive the support they need, because professionals don’t understand childhood trauma and its impacts in later life.

For supporters

Many survivors fear telling people about the abuse they suffered because they worry that they won’t be believed or that listeners can’t bear to hear about it.

Donate

Around one in five adults experienced some form of abuse in childhood, but trauma-informed support can transform lives.
