Adult Survivors of Child Sexual Abuse

Reporting to the police that you have been a victim of child sexual abuse is a huge decision.

Many adult survivors carry the burden of their abuse for years before deciding to speak out, and some never do.

Understanding what happens once police are contacted can help a victim of child sexual abuse make a more informed decision, and one which is the right decision for them as an individual.

Operation Hydrant, working with Police Scotland, have developed a short animated film aimed at providing supportive information to adult victims and survivors of child abuse who may be thinking of reporting to police and wondering what comes next. 

If you need the Police, please call us on 101, or 999 in an emergency, or contact us using our Live Chat system.
