Sexual Abuse charity funding crisis sees up to 10,000 in UK wait a year for help

Fay Maxted OBE, CEO of the Survivors Trust is quoted:

Fay Maxted OBE, the chief executive of the Survivors Trust, a national umbrella group for sexual abuse charities, said victims were being deprived of quick access to support – meaning the UK was in breach of an EU directive protecting their human rights.

    I would like to apolgize for the jlmubed grammar in the letter I sent. At times, my brain chemistry gets ignited and is not calm. I want to help and do as much as I can for myself and others but I don’t quite know how do that. I am surely not great on a computer but I excel in personal interactions and have 9 years of therapy with these issues. I am a great support to friends who are also getting well. I will send you my resume. . . sorry I haven’t done that already. I’ve dealt with some horrendous family history and I am finally at peace with it. But I still have rage and terror about being raped and sexually assaulted by catholic employees (prients and nuns). I need more knowledge and support to keep moving through it. I stop because I am Exhausted, then I catch my breathe and dissociate slowly moving back to life and to continue. I don’t understand the VOFT Conference in Sept at Boston . . . but I am going to try and go. It’s extremely exspensive so I hope to get some financial help. None of my friends or anyone I know in this area of the states has been raped in the catholic church. I miss having some to share intimate details with. And attorney, Jeff Anderson is still a mini-God in this area I am sorry to end this letter erruptly but I’ve got to sign off and divert my attention elsewhere. Thank you for your time. Sincerely, Marcene Magadance 2455 Londin Lane E Condo 217 Maplewood, MN 55119 (651)698-3771
