Comment on Operation Conifer, Wiltshire Police’s investigation into allegations of child abuse by former Prime Minister Sir Edward Heath
NAPAC comment on Operation Conifer, Wiltshire Police’s investigation into allegations of child abuse by former Prime Minister, Sir Edward Heath
“It was right for Wilshire Police to carry out a thorough and proportionate investigation into allegations of child abuse by former Prime Minister Sir Edward Heath. Wiltshire Police have examined the evidence carefully and made the judgement that six of these claims would have met the threshold for Heath to have been interviewed under caution, had he been alive today.”
NAPAC’s Supporting Adult Survivors of Childhood Abuse (SASCA) one-day training course has today been accredited by the Royal Society for Public Health (RSPH). The programme explores how to respond sensitively and effectively to first disclosures, survival strategies and coping mechanisms in adults, post-traumatic stress reactions and trauma-informed practices.
We need more volunteers to join our friendly support line team in Stockport. Our next volunteer training will run on Monday evenings from 6-9pm over 5 weeks, starting in Oct 2017. If you have empathy, resilience and can commit to a regular four-hour shift, then we’d love to hear from you.
Our one day SASCA training course in London is suitable for qualified counsellors and therapists. The course will run on Sat 2 Dec 2017 in London, EC2A. Book by 31 Oct for an early bird discount.
NAPAC receives grant funding which allows us to continue providing our free support line and email support service. We’re only able to take a fraction of the calls we receive, so we rely on the generous donations made by individuals to help us meet growing demand.
Demand has risen substantially over the past 3 years, from 55,393 call attempts in 2014/15, to 73,031 in 2015/16 to 89,960 in 2016/17.
‘I survived child abuse and now I’m a trustee for the small charity that helped me,’ Dawn Neville, NAPAC Trustee. ‘I know how important it is to have small, highly-focused charities that are close by when someone needs to talk.’
We’re looking for a Survivor Support Facilitator for our telephone support line service in Stockport.
