Westminster debate on resources for Survivors of Childhood Sexual Abuse 02/03/2006
Bridget Sterling's art will be on show in London from 2nd to 26th November. Please see invitation for further details.
A high ranking group of officials involved with issues arouind child protection and domestic violence visited NAPAC this week.
Peter Saunders explains the beginnings of setting up NAPAC's support services on CommunityCare.co.uk.
The march beings at noon on Saturday 21st October, starting from Marble Arch and finishing at Trafalgar Square.
It is a great opportunity to make new friends, find support and be part of the survivor network of both male and female survivors of sexual abuse in the UK.
Please join in and break the silence and isolation surrounding sexual abuse.
Special Edition Films, who produce films often of a sensitive and difficult nature, are looking to talk in complete confidence to family members who are dealing with a child sex abuser in the family, for documentary research.
They are looking into this area because they believe the fact that most child sex abuse happens within a family, unlike what the nation is led to believe through tabloid "stranger danger" hysteria, needs to be given wider publicity.
They think that it is also important to show there is more than one victim in child sex abuse cases - with the family also having to come to terms with their lives being completely turned upside down; the loving and trusting relationship they once believed in being stripped away.
If you are interested, please email Danni or you can call her on 020 8960 1446.
I am a survivor of a paedophile ring of men. I would like
to contact any adult who has had a similar experience. I can
be contacted via NAPAC. Thank you.

Courageous, inspirational volunteers for dance and theatre project in the North West
No dance or theatre experience necessary. You must be a survivor of incest or childhood sexual abuse in recovery and be willing to go public.
The project aims to ultimately help in the prevention of incest and sexual abuse through performance work and movement workshops.
They want to increase public awareness, empower people to act responsibility to protect children, to provide a platform to expose myths, empower survivors and bring about a shift in social responsibility.
If you are a community dance worker or a practitioner working in this area and have a few spare hours they would also like to hear from you.
For more information please contact Bev Lewis, Project Co-ordinator or call 01253 724427.
A request by a survivor- Norwich - late 1960's

15 March Thank you for everything you have done so far to help make the current House of Commons Early Day Motion (EDM) 729 "Children & human rights", one of the top concerns for Westminster MPs. Please see our report which outlines the progress made with this EDM.
In the coming weeks, we need to step up constituent pressure on those MPs who, for whatever reason, have not signed EDM 729. Your help would be greatly appreciated.
We would be very grateful if you would write to your MPs about EDM 729. Please see our short campaign action briefing for further information.www.childrenareunbeatable.org.uk
To all survivors, we all know of the lack of resources for the likes of ourselves, family and partners. Here is a chance to have your voice heard. I have asked my MP Mr Kawczynski (of Shrewsbury & Atcham) to table a debate on Resources for Survivors of Childhood Sexual Abuse, which will be heard in Westminster Hall shortly.
We need as many as possible MPs from across the political spectrum to support this debate which is why I am asking you to consider writing to your local MP requesting that they support Mr Kawczynski.
Please feel free to add any personal experiences you have with regard Childhood Sexual Abuse, this is entirely your own choice but the more we make the politicians realise that we are a very large, but as yet unheard of, amount of people who do not have a voice or representation in Parliament.
If you wish to know how to contact your MP please go to: www.theyworkforyou.com.
