NAPAC recognises that child abuse doesn't just affect children but also the adults they become. The NAPAC Support Line provides a listening ear and is also a source of information on ongoing local support (where it exists). Even with our low profile we are currently receiving an average of 600 calls a week and our aim is to get enough funding to answer every call - which would mean a larger Support Line room, more volunteers and two more members of staff to support the structure. One caller said "It is good to know you are not alone. Sometimes I used to think I was the only one who had been to hell and back many many times. Thank you for listening." Another said "It was helpful to find someone to talk to about my childhood abuse and not feel judged. Thank you." Your financial support (however big or small) will help us provide this vital support! Thank you!
