Safeguarding poster: you don’t need to keep painful secrets

You are welcome to download and print these posters for free. They have been written with the obstacles which prevent disclosures of child sexual abuse in mind. They have been designed to be clear, simple and bold… and to speak to young people who may be experiencing sexual abuse. The feeling of having to ‘keep secrets’ is a common experience for children who have been abused, as is a fear of being blamed or getting in to some kind of ‘trouble’. Feel free to display these posters anywhere where young people might see them and be prepared to discuss their meaning. We offer training (link to Home) to help you do this, and to respond to any disclosures you may receive.
