The funding has been awarded by ScIE, the Social care Institute for Social Excellence, a leading independent charity.
Clare Wilson, from Clarifi Consulting, says: "This is fantastic news. I know that this project is going to improve the lives of many adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse who have fallen between the cracks of social care for too long”.
“We are delighted that we were able to fulfil the challenging criteria put forward to the applicants.”
Clarifi offers advice and support through its programmes that have been devised specifically for survivors of CSA, encouraging them to confront the exact nature of the abuse and helping them to move forward through therapy and healing. Survivors are referred to them by medical professionals and the programmes, which run for eight weeks, and have a proven results outcome.
The Social Work Practice Pioneer Projects scheme was launched to offer the opportunity for a variety of groups and local authorities to develop projects seen as offering real benefits for those in need of specialist help and services.
A total of ten organisations were short-listed, out of many applications, by a panel selected by the ScIE and consisting of representatives from the College of Social Work, the British Association of Social Workers, the Local Government Association and the Department of Health, along with an academic, and user and expert of mental health services.
