Adults who suffered abuse as children

Many survivors of childhood abuse manage to live successful lives, in a range of professions, achieving important goals in life, career and relationships. They show great strength and courage in doing so. It is possible to recover from many effects of abuse, come to terms with what has happened, by realising that the abuse was not your fault. Some survivors find that difficulties remain with them for the rest of their lives but this is not a hard and fast rule.

If you have been subjected to abuse as a child that you were unable to report at the time, you will find helpful information on the Survivor Scotland website.

If you are aware that someone who abused you as a child is still accessing children, please contact us so we can take steps to ensure the children's safety.
