• Support Group For Child Sexual Abuse

    Purpose

    Parents are made aware of the different types of child sexual abuse and incidents that can happen within the family, at school and in the broader community. Parents are given the chance to discuss real life issues and to share personal experiences.

    Target

    All parents are encouraged to participate in the support group in order to participate in an open, sharing platform. Each school is expected to have a list of parents who are volunteering to be part of the support groups.

    Content

    It includes sexual grooming, for both the child and the parents, how to protect children and avoid predators, understanding sexual offender behaviour.

    Outcome

    Parents are informed about warning signs of possible child sexual abuse, both physical and emotional, who are the offenders and steps to be taken to keep the child safe from sexual abuse.

    Referrals and different service provider lists are discussed and options for the parents to choose from in terms of need for support.
