Break the silence united was founded as a Ltd company in September 2017.
It has been setup to help adult victims of child abuse regain control over their lives, break their silence, seek much needed help and ultimately go from being a victim to a survivor.
Statistics show that adult survivors are more likely to find themselves in abusive relationships as adults, self harm, turn to drug or substance misuse and suffer ill mental health as a result of an adverse childhood experience. yet there is no where for them to turn, and sadly all too many turn to suicide as a permanent solution to what should be a temporary problem!
At break the silence united we want to offer support services including individual therapy, couple therapies, awareness on mental health, substance abuse help, legal assistance and training. As the company progresses we hope to open purpose built hubs up and down the country to give a face to face presence where survivors can engage with other survivors in group counselling sessions or by utilizing our custom social media platform.
It is only with your help, and your shares that we can accomplish this plan and make a change to a survivors life!
Some further statistics on abuse
In 2016 there were a recorded 12,407,482 children under the age of 16 living in the United Kingdom - of these
1 in 20 were sexually abused (620,374)
1 in 3 did not tell (206,791)
90% knew their abusers (558,336)
If we consider this is only a snapshot of one years worth of abuse based on figures released by both the NSPCC and Office of national statistics which already shows hundreds of thousands of abuse victims that 'dont tell' it can be assumed that over a 20 / 30 / 40 year period the number of ADULTS who still 'did not tell' could in fact be in the millions and we find this unacceptable!
