Our Support

As a registered UK charity, it's in our heart and passion to help people doing through some of their toughest times.

We believe nobody fits in a box, but offer compassionate support to families in 2 highly specialised ways:

 

  1. Supporting the parents/carers of children who have been sexually abused.

  2. Supporting non-offending parents/carers whose loved one has accessed indecent images (IVOII).

Some types of support we offer:

We also provide a wide range of flexible mental health and trauma informed training for professionals and businesses on a bespoke basis. Please contact us to discuss your needs.

Our Charges

We want to help every family that's been affected by CSA or discovered a loved one has been accessing indecent images. Our specialist support works, but it costs the charity to run. To help, we ask for a subsidised contribution from our clients. We wish we didn't have to, but without contributions, the charity simply wouldn't exist and we couldn't help anyone.

However...

We don't want a lack of finances to stop anyone getting help either, so if your looking for help and would find it challenging to donate anything to the charity - please speak to us in confidence before you get disheartened!

We offer various support services, which usually fall into the two categories of either Therapeutic Support or Counselling Support (these are different things and we will discuss this with you when you contact us).

Our contribution rates are based on household income bands. It's the fairest way we can think of helping everyone access relevant support, but still at a highly discounted rate.

1. Therapeutic Support Contribution Guide

  • Therapeutic trauma Support is charged by invoice on the above means tested basis, usually booked in 6 session blocks at a time.

  • Discretionary complimentary support is sometimes available, please speak to us in confidence.

  • Last minute cancellations cost everyone. For cancellations with less than 48h notice, we reserve the right to still charge for the session. We will however attempt to re-book with you, where available.

Scope Of Our Support

We're here to help families recover from the devastating impacts of CSA or when a family member is discovered to have been accessing indecent images. We offer non-judgemental support to non-offending family members in a range of settings and in different format's - all to help support the journey of recovery to thrive again.

 

Our approach is to remain person centred, therefore we will discuss clear aims, objectives and expectations before we support any client - because it's important everyone is committed and understands the scope of support.

Giving Hope.

My world was turned upside down. ACTS FAST was the only place I felt safe to talk about what I was going through without fear of judgment. I didn’t feel like I deserved any help as I was feeling so guilty, that I failed to protect my child.
