Stories of Hope
Anon Advocacy Support
2003 was a pivotal event in my life, it was then that I made my first complaint to the Gardai of allegations of sexual abuse and rape by my maternal uncle.
It was after making my complaint that I sought the services of One in Four. I did not know where to turn to, I felt helpless, lonely and isolated.
An advocacy officer in One in Four accompanied me to court; I found the service indispensable in explaining the legal terminology and running of the court, as well as providing emotional support during a traumatising experience.
