Gillian Finch's Recent Activity

"CIS’ters: surviving rape, sexual abuse and sexual exploitation during childhood CIS’ters work with Adult women (aged 18+) who were raped and/or sexually abused and/or sexually exploited as female children/teens by a member of their immediate or extended family. Though our work we are aware that childhood sexual abuse, particularly by a member of family – can lead to very negative coping strategies for women, which can lead to homelessness, and worse. CIS’ters facilitates group meetings, newsletters, workshops and campaigning for improved services from statutory and other organisations. They also provide training for other agencies. In addition the organisation runs a helpline once a week for female survivors Tel: 023 80 338080 (Saturdays 10am-noon). A flyer for our next training event, our service and a copy of our most recent newsletter is attached. For more information email: [email protected]"
