It’s your choice…….. Really appreciate the effort this takes, and please take care, it may bring up feelings. But it is really being done in the hope that we can begin to raise serious funding and helpful resources to co create some wonderful sanctuaries and healing centres….perhaps any people already working, could may offer up some freebie spaces specifically for victims and survivors of child sexual abuse…..sorely needed. Anyway…choices about how you participate are :
1. Complete anonymity ~ just tick the boxes.
2. Protected anonymity~ tick the boxes, write your comment in the form, and we will post to public comments for you.
3. public comment in the space below the form, many people disguise their id,s anyway.
The poll does not give info on who ticked what. Only you will know what answers you gave, unless you choose to disclose more, but please do remember it is completely up to everyone,.
Please take the time to tick the boxes that apply ‘yes’ for you.
Everyone can take part, whether you were abused or not, please do……
It is a very simple poll, so if you would like to enlarge on any point, please do so, using the contact form, at the bottom of this page, and indicate whether we can publish your words, and with or without your name, take your time, to reflect….
If anything about the questions, doesn’t quite fit, or needs altering for your country, or circumstances, please write more if you wish, and make personal points in your testimony.
We may use parts of testimonies, in a confidential way, unless told otherwise, to help us to paint as clear a picture as possible, of how victims & survivors of CSA have been let down, in so many ways, and this poll hasn,t even covered health……….yet.
We are hoping to collect & use statistics without breaking confidentiality, in order to help people, and especially tackle the child protection & ‘care’ system, and also so that people that donate to major charities now, will realise that grassroots non profit organisations, can do better in many cases, with less money, and help us to be able to fund some excellent resources in the future.
We will soon have a more detailed survey, but for now, this information will be very useful for us, to make our case, and a case for alot of people, to counter injustices that have been going on unchecked within the secret family courts, that operate in similar ways, dynamically, to abuse, disempower, suppress and then silence (through gagging orders) parents who have not seriously abused their child/ren, and with help could have overcome their difficulties. So imagine if that parent has been abused, then the adverserial and punitive actions of many social workers or team leaders, and the negative scrutiny, judgement of a psych expert, can be extra harmful.
Of course not all parents losing their children to care were abused themselves, nor are they all innocent of real harm, those are the cases that need fast intervention.
There are further problems within the famiy justice system, but we are not able to deal with them all here. Google Forced Adoption, or Stolen Children, and you will find lots of groups and sites.
Tick only boxes that you can answer yes too.
Please reach out for support if you need some.
Thankyou very much for spending the time, please share widely so that as many as possible can join in.
We have youtube playlists Jointhedots100 with resources for victims & survivors of CSA, and also links through our twitter and page likes to support or campaign sites globally.
Help us Join The Dots and co create The Real Fullstop to child abuse……
