Your stories

The stories in this section are intended to pass on some of the understanding, comfort, hope and pain these children have shared. By writing their stories, these children were able to express emotions and tell stories not easily spoken.

Because these stories are about older people sexually abusing children and young people they should have been protecting, they are very sad. These are also the stories of survivors, of strong young people who have taken steps to help make the world a safer place.

If you submit a story to be published we may alter it to remove identifying information or rude words.
