The trauma of child sexual abuse can last a lifetime

Our programmes help adults who have experienced childhood sexual abuse, their families, and those who have engaged in sexually harmful behaviour. We work in all aspects of sexual violence in an effort to break the cycle of abuse.

Reporting abuse

Our advocacy team is here to provide support, and answer any of your questions.



Going to court

The criminal and civil court process can be stressful, intimidating and unfamiliar. The advocacy team’s knowledge and understanding of the legal systems can assist you in exercising your rights.



Dealing with Gardaí

If you have already made a statement to the Gardaí our advocacy team is here to provide support and information to adults availing of any of legal options regarding their experience of childhood sexual abuse in Ireland.
