Supporting recovery from childhood abuse

If you’re an adult survivor of any form of child abuse, we’re here for you. Taking a first step is difficult, but we can provide you with support and signposting on your road to recovery.

Reach out when you’re ready

Call our free, confidential support line:

We know that talking can be tough and isn’t accessible for everyone, so you can also email us at and we’ll aim to respond within two working days. Please note that the wait can sometimes be slightly longer during busy periods. 

Our Strategic Plan for 2023 – 2028 is now available. Over the next five years we’re investing in improving access for a wider range of survivors and ensuring we share our best practice approach to trauma-informed care, both in the UK and overseas.

Getting Out in the Fresh Air

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 recover and reclaim your life.

Trauma informed approach - NHS

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.

Resized Supporters

For supporters

Many survivors fear telling people about the abuse they experienced because they worry that they won’t be believed or the information will be too much to bear.


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


Our series of free booklets written for survivors will answer your questions and provide you with useful tips and advice
