“For all the victims who have suffered in silence and those who have helped shaped this report, we have listened. This report provides unequivocal evidence which highlights failings of investigations of Police services in England & Wales. The Halo Project believes and advocates justice is a human right for everyone and therefore look forward to the implementation of recommendations from this report.”
- Yasmin Khan, Founder of The Halo Project
While we offer specialist support to all victims and survivors of sexual abuse, regardless of gender, culture, age, religion, race, ability, and sexuality, we recognise that some survivors may benefit more from specific support services which are geographically local or designed to address different cultural needs. Therefore, to ensure every victim and survivor coming forward is adequately supported, we have included links below to services that support those coming forward to break the silence caused by sexual abuse.
