** SERVICES ANNOUNCEMENT **

We have adapted our range of support for people during Covid-19 outbreak

In these unprecedented times we are facing, never has support for people’s mental health been so important. Parents and family members who are going through already very difficult times are likely to feel even more isolated and extremely anxious. Disruption to our support options will be hugely unsettling and detrimental for parents and families wellbeing.

Therefore, our existing services will be replaced by telephone, email and text support.

Anyone who is feeling anxious, isolated and wanting to reach out, we are encouraging you to reach out for our emotional support at these difficult times.

Call us on 01202 797217 : We have extended our phone support to evening slots to help ease with new day time routines

Text or call us on 07468 694068

Please do not feel alone.

Our Mission

Acts Fast is Abused Children’s Trauma Support, Family Advice & Strategy Team

We are a group of people who are committed to addressing the injustice from the lack of support shown to the protective parent/carer of sexually abused children. Our aim is to ensure that other parent/carers are freed of the guilt, shame and isolation experienced when their child discloses sexual abuse and to reduce the impact of the trauma. Acts Fast also support partners and family members affected by a loved one downloading indecent images online.

‘We stop and listen while the world carries on’

We at Acts Fast understand that the effects of Trauma and child sexual abuse are long-lasting. Therefore, we welcome parents for support regardless of how old their child is. It is never too late to reach out and receive support.
