Safeguarding poster: you did not bring it upon yourself

When you speak to a child who has been sexually abused, you are up against perhaps years of them being told, by the abuser, that they asked for it or otherwise caused it. Abusers, like any criminal, are afraid of being discovered and so will say whatever they need to, to keep children silent. This poster sends a message that abused children need to hear: that they are not responsible and can therefore disclose to you or a member of staff at your organisation without fear of being blamed.
