RELEASE into Victory is a support service for adults over the age of 18 who have experienced or are affected by Childhood Sexual Abuse (CSA).
RiV is a non profit Community Interest Company established in 2013 based in Preston, we operate across Central Lancashire.
Our Action Points
By raising awareness of CSA, we send a message to perpetrators that sexual abuse is unacceptable and will not be tolerated in our communities, we are not afraid to speak out about this crime.
The message for survivors is that you are not alone, you where not to blame, it's time to talk about IT
It's time to talk about it!!
The workshops provide specialist information & knowledge associated with the CSA & the impact this can have on adult survivors.
There are opportunities for open discussions, for attendees to become more comfortable speaking and hearing about this sensitive topic. Delivered by our Peer Power Team members with lived experiences of CSA ,there is opportunity to ask questions and explore personal feelings about this subject in a safe environment.
Peer Team Support
We offer 1:1 informal, confidential support to enable our clients to consider their current needs and give opportunity to explore options and choices in regards to next steps in their healing and recovery processes.
Our Peer Power Team come together to plan, develop and facilitate activities and events which enhance wellbeing in a safe environment. All of our projects are run by individuals with Lived Experiences of CSA who are empowered to break the silence and secrecy around this taboo topic
