NSPCC working in partnership with RASASC to support children who have been sexually abused.
NSPCC have seconded a worker to RASASC so that together, we can ensure that the children, young people and families of Cheshire receive the support and help they need to recover from their experiences.
NSPCC Letting the Future In is a specialist service for children and young people who have been affected by sexual abuse. Sexual abuse can affect young people in all kinds of ways. Many children and young people have told us they feel confused and upset about what has happened to them. They have said that having the chance to talk about their feelings really helps. We also know that parents and carers of children who have been sexually abused, can play an important part in helping their child.
The NSPCC worker will complete an assessment of how we can best help you and your child. Your child will then be able to receive up to 24 therapeutic sessions to help them recover and you will be offered up to 8 sessions for yourself in order to be able to support your child.
RASASC have offered great support during our initial meetings and have put us in contact with other organisations that can offer further counselling and support. I found my worker very comfortable to talk to and was always there to listen to our concerns. She offered great support and you really did get the feeling that she cared.
