Ethnic Survivors Forum
The Ethnic Survivors Forum is a new culturally sensitive service available for minority ethnic communities and professional bodies.
They offer support services for minority ethnic adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse, including:
- A free 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 and resources
- A culturally sensitive befriending service.
- Face to face confidential and free counselling and support
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.
