On Friday 5 February 2021 NAPAC was featured in The Sun newspaper as part of the Ministry of Justice #ItStillMatters campaign.

Our Fundraising Manager, Kim Bond, spoke exclusively to journalist Julia Richardson. In the article Kim speaks about her experiences as a survivor and how support has helped her throughout her life.

Her story, however, is ultimately one of hope and empowerment, about rebuilding her life and using the knowledge she has gained to help others’ Julia wrote.

Kim – a disclosed survivor which means that she is happy for her identity to be known – found NAPAC a decade ago when she sought advice from the organisation’s website which has a vast amount of information for survivors to use.’

Kim hopes the article will encourage more people to find the resources NAPAC has online, start conversations, and lead more people to support NAPAC.

Gabrielle Shaw, NAPAC’s Chief Executive, said

This is a sensitive and well-written article with Kim eloquently weaving in her personal experience with how NAPAC operates and supports survivors today. I am tremendously grateful to Kim for doing this. The impact this will have on survivors of abuse who read the article will be profound – Kim takes an authentic and pragmatic approach, outlining steps people can take to seek support in a way that isn’t daunting’.
