BBC Children In Need Funding


We received great news in March, as we were notified that we’d been awarded a grant from BBC Children in Need of £102,396. This will be spent over 3 years and will provide independent advocacy support for sexually abused children and young people aged from 5 to 18 years. This funding is a 3 year extension and a continuation of a current 3 year grant, to help vulnerable youngsters to be better informed about their choices, whilst receiving specialist support after they’ve reported sexual abuse, sexual violence or childhood sexual exploitation.

“We’re delighted that BBC Children in Need have awarded us an extension to our current grant, meaning that our advocacy service will  be offered until at least 2019” said Lisa Thompson, Chief Executive of RSVP. “We’d also like to say a big thank you to all those fundraisers and supporters across the UK whose kind donations have helped to make this happen. This funding will help us make a real difference to the lives of children who have experienced a devastating trauma at an early age.”

Clients like this young person who told us, “Thank you for being there.  Your help meant I could attend court when I had to.  I had forgotten what my life was like before the sexual abuse happened. You made me realise my strengths instead.”
