Because I believe in you!! I'm not a survivor, i'm still a victim in the healing process but the times I've spoken to NAPAC have restored my faith.

Why your donation matters
Case study: donations in action
I am almost 40. When I was 13, I was abused by a family friend. It was summer 1985, the rest of the family were out. The friend who was our builder and decorator was always around but never when I was alone. I hid what happened from all my family for 25 years. My school work suffered and I started to steal things to get attention.
This went on for years. He was always around doing little jobs for my parents. I just disappeared and went to my room. This upset my family as they wanted me to help. In 1989 he offed me a job. I turned him down.
Three years later he was doing contract work where I worked. He trapped me in the toilets and tried it on again.
Fast forward till 2010 when I was affected by a talk I had heard. I then decided to start counselling. During one of these sessions I disclosed to my counsellor. Then the biggest decision I would ever make to disclose to a friend. That day I remember clearly. I couldn't tell my family. In November 2010 I told my dad. He was totally heartbroken. I then told my whole family. It caused me a lot of stress. In may 2011 I was given news that would change my life forever. The community I belonged to told me they didn't want me.
In September 2011 I went on a NAPAC course to help me cope with all the issues I've faced. Since then I've found a good job. I've moved in to my own flat and started to live my life again.
I hope this will bring some hope to others
