Amber's story

RESTRICTED-35234-exp-2025-08.jpg

"When I was 9, I was sexually abused by a close family member. By the time I was 12, it was destroying me. I spoke to Childline and they helped me build up the courage to confide in a teacher.

After suffering anxiety and depression, I was referred to NPSCC's Letting the Future In service, which helps children recover after sexual abuse, and had weekly therapy sessions.

It's made an amazing difference to me. I don't think I would be here at all now if it wasn't for the NSPCC."

Amber's story

"When I was 9, I was sexually abused by a close family member. By the time I was 12, it was destroying me. I spoke to Childline and they helped me build up the courage to confide in a teacher, something I'd wanted to do for 2 years."

The case went to trial but collapsed due to a lack of evidence - which was a very distressing experience. After suffering anxiety and depression, Amber was referred to Letting the Future In, our therapeutic recovery service for children who've been sexually abused."
