Abusing the Issue – Group Award Nominee – 2001

The group, set up by two parents who identified a need to provide support for women whose children had been abused, recognises the isolation and fear felt by women at a time when ‘ their lives had been torn apart by events’ and the need for women who have the same level of understanding to share their experiences. Amongst other projects, the group has plans to establish a helpline and develop a training video for social work students.
