Many adult survivors struggle to cope with various aspects of life including issues such as low self-esteem, anger, guilt and self-blame.
Peter Saunders, founder of the National Association for People Abused In Childhood (NAPAC), said “I think its a great tragedy she has gone but let’s move on.”

Gabrielle Shaw, CEO of NAPAC, said: ‘We need to look at how we protect children raised in families where some members have suffered long-term abuse. Predators look for vulnerability and may target survivors of abuse, realising that they haven’t grown up with healthy relationships and have other risk factors. We need to make sure we are supporting survivors of child abuse into adulthood, so that they can give their children the safe childhood which they were denied.’
Victim Support is running the Information Line for the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse (IICSA) and NAPAC is providing additional specialist emotional support to IICSA callers via a call-back service.
