Listen Support Believe

This service helps children and young people from 8 years upwards who reside in the Kirklees, Calderdale or Wakefield region who have suffered from all types of sexual abuse and violence. We have supported survivors of sexual violence since 1989.

We are here to listen • support you  to believe you • without judgement

We understand that deciding to talk to someone about what has happened to you or how you feel can be very scary. You may be struggling with uncomfortable feelings that are making your life difficult or difficult for people you care about.

We are here to listen, support and be guided by you.

Groups

Young People Support Group

Our CHISVA Team have developed two young people support groups for girls aged 13-17 and for boys aged 13-17 who have experience sexual violence. The group is a psychoeducational support group meaning it helps you to understand and cope with what has happened in a safe, supportive environment. The group runs once a week for 10 weeks. Each session will focus on different themes including anger management, coping mechanisms, healthy relationships and trust. This group aims to provide a safe space for you to talk and improve your knowledge, confidence and feelings.

If you’re interested in this, give our helpline a call and let us know or refer here.

90%

It’s normal to feel like you can’t trust anyone as statistics show 90% of children who have been sexually abused know their abuser

100%

Most survivors of abuse will feel that no one else will understand and may feel alone even when they have support

ZERO

It is normal to feel you can’t tell anyone. Most survivors of abuse do not tell anyone when it is happening due to embarrassment or fear of not being believed

4000

We are here to support you, last year nearly 4,000 survivors of sexual abuse aged 15 years and under were supported by a rape crisis organisation like KCRASAC

1 in 7

In 2017 -2018 in England and Wales about 1 in 7 child abuse offences were carried out online
