CSA Social Awareness
We are a registered Community Interest Company established in 2013, our Trauma-informed Independent Sexual Violence Advisor (ISVA) service provides information, support and guidance’s for adults, who are affected by Childhood Sexual Abuse (ACSA).
RELEASE CIC is run by individuals who have lived experience of non-recent CSA. We are committed to promoting social awareness of this taboo topic in a sensitive, professional manner and welcome support and interest from potential stakeholders from statuary and VCFS agencies and services.
We are invite individuals or staff/volunteers from any Lancashire based services to attend our Networking Sessions which will allow us to introduce you to our service in an informal manner.
We are fully committed to exploring strategies for active inter-agency collaboration. We believe that it is very important to break down barriers which restrict or prevent victims of this crime from seeking the support they justly deserve.
By raising awareness of CSA, we send a message to perpetrators that sexual abuse is unacceptable and will not be tolerated in our communities, we are not afraid to speak out about this crime.
The message for survivors is:
You are not alone
You where not to blame
It’s time to talk about IT
