Our Mission

Acts Fast is Abused Children’s Trauma Support, Family Advice & Strategy Team

We are a group of people who are committed to addressing the injustice from the lack of support shown to the protective parent/carer of sexually abused children. Our aim is to ensure that other parent/carers are freed of the guilt, shame and isolation experienced when their child discloses sexual abuse and to reduce the impact of the trauma. ‘We stop and listen while the world carries on’

WALL OF SILENCE EXHIBITION

From July 11th, Bournemouth University and Acts Fast will be presenting Southmead Project’s ‘Wall of Silence’, a display of images and stories that share the experience and impact of child abuse. The exhibition has already been shown across other towns and cities, including Bristol and Northampton (see http://southmeadproject.org.uk/wall-of-silence/). The exhibition will be accompanied by a conference.
