Organisations that can help

We have collated a list of organisations with expertise in sibling sexual abuse. Many of these provide support services for children, young people and families.

Centre of expertise on child sexual abuse

The centre of expertise on child sexual abuse (CSA Centre) website contains information on sibling sexual abuse and is a key partner in the project’s work.

A key document for all practitioners and professionals wanting to learn more about sibling sexual abuse is the centre’s report – Sibling sexual abuse: A Knowledge and Practice Overview.

The CSA Centre has just launched a Signs and Indicators Template to help professionals gather the wider signs and indicators of sexual abuse and build a picture of their concerns.

To keep up to date with the latest resources, research and news on child sexual abuse, you can sign-up to their newsletter.

You can also download their useful infographics on statistics.

What next for people with lived experience when the justice process fails?

I usually enjoy my job as a trauma counsellor for SARSAS – it’s a privilege to participate in clients’ recovery journeys. However, I find supporting clients who have had negative experiences while seeking justice some of the saddest journeys, and the ones most likely to invoke my anger at the injustices within this broken system.
