Making Noise: Children's Voices for Positive Change after Sexual Abuse

Making Noise is a research project, conducted by the University of Bedfordshire, which aimed to evaluate children's experiences of help-seeking and support after sexual abuse in the family environment. Many of Imara's clients are past victims of familial sexual abuse, and the findings of this study, which concluded that there are significant barriers to children and young people receiving appropriate support following sexual abuse, serve to show just how important the work Imara does is. We begin working with victims and their families immediately after a disclosure of sexual abuse, using early intervention alongside innovative therapeutic techniques to help our clients recover from their trauma.
