The story of the first UK Barnahus (Child House) called The Lighthouse. It is a safe space for children and young people that experience sexual abuse.
An historical step change towards child friendly justice, providing life changing outcomes for the children. This is my personal journal to lead that change, the challenges I faced, the amazing conversation and the unexpected responses.
This is an invitation for you to change the system where you live and work, for the 1 in 10 children that live with the aftermath of child sexual abuse.
