The Ethnic Survivors Forum is a new culturally sensitive service available for minority ethnic communities and professional bodies.
We offer support services for minority ethnic adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse, including:
- A Freephone telephone helpline – a confidential service that offers support and a listening ear as well as details of local support services
- A unique interactive website offering information, resources and support via our online forum where adult survivors can share their own personal stories of survival
- A Group Support Programme where adult survivors can meet and share their experiences in a safe and secure environment
The Ethnic Survivors Forum hopes to work alongside statutory agencies, voluntary organisations and other bodies in pursuit of developing, supporting and influencing the future direction of services for minority ethnic survivors of childhood sexual abuse.
The Ethnic Survivors Forum aims to increase awareness of childhood sexual abuse and its long term consequences within ethnic minority communities and will actively promote a programme of education and awareness raising.
As an Enrolled Intermediary Organisation with CRBS we continue to be committed to our successful Scottish wide Faith Communities Disclosure project, a significant multi-partnership child protection initiative with some 40 organisations presently participating. This unique initiative has no precedent in the United Kingdom.
roshni can never hope to end child abuse by itself. This is why we set out to involve everybody and often work in partnership, because safeguarding our children and young people is everyone’s responsibility.
