Were There’s a Will -They Can Find A Way!
‘Trigger Warning’ if you or someone you know has been affected by sexual abuse please remember the Dublin Rape Crisis Centre 24-hour Helpline is open 1800 77 8888
In today’s podcast (episode 27 – Were there’s a will -they can find a way) we continue delving into the intense fear gripping the world today and how it relates to and impacts victims of childhood sexual abuse and trauma. We talk about the underlying global pandemic of child sexual abuse and how its victims have been failed time and time again by those in positions of power.
We consider how different our lives could be if they just had the will to make the necessary changes. We also talk about the current services that are in crisis, and if considered essential services, why have they not received any additional funding at a time when the need for such specialist supports are vital to thousands of victims.
We will be discussing what has to happen to tackle the offenders of child sexual abuse and the growing incidents of domestic violence during this time, when victims are basically trapped into a pressure cooker environment with their abusers. How in our opinion, there is an urgent need for change in how we approach the treatment and support to both victims and abusers and how we all need to pull together if we are ever to end these horrendous crimes that impact us all.
We hope by sharing our experiences and observations we will help others know they are not alone and women and children need to be given the best opportunities to live a life without fear
