Episode 21 – Shaneda Daly


Shaneda Daly - Founder of Survivors Side By Side

a closed facebook support page of survivors of sexual abuse

‘Trigger Warning’ if you or someone you know has been affected by sexual abuse please remember the Dublin Rape Crisis Centre 24-Hour Helpline 1800 77 888

We kick off this series of podcasts where we undertake a number of interviews with people and organisations that provide supports to victims of sexual violence, childhood sexual abuse or childhood trauma, with Shaneda Daly, Founder of Survivors Side by Side- facebook support page.  

Shaneda, like ourselves was a victim of childhood sexual abuse, she against all odds was successful in having her father convicted and imprisoned for his crimes while all the time having no support from her family.  She has found her calling through reaching out to other victims and supporting them through the process of healing.  She founded ‘Survivors Side by Side’,  a facebook page allowing other victims the space to speak about their struggles or simply to sit and observe others doing so until they find their voice. This is a closed page so everyone on it knows they are safe.

Shaneda is a very courageous and inspiring women, she laughs her way through the most difficult times and is eager to pass on her learning to others who find themselves in the same predicament.  She is a fighter and a strong activist and believe me when I say she never rests; Ministers and TD’s have been plagued by her and she does not let up until she gets the results she wants.  She is funny, open, honest and fearless.  She speaks her mind and is an absolute inspiration to all who are lucky enough to know her. 

The object of the interviews is to provide information about what support is currently available, it will also be an opportunity to highlight what is missing and the huge piece of work still to be done. We firmly believe that together that is possible.

Take care

Joyce, June and Paula
