Supporting adult survivors of in care childhood abuse
Additional funding to extend services.
Support for adult survivors of childhood abuse while they were in care will be extended for two years with additional Scottish Government funding.
Up to £9 million is going to Future Pathways, which works with organisations from the statutory and voluntary sectors, to provide support such as education or training courses, therapeutic services or psychological trauma counselling.
Mental Health Minister Clare Haughey recently said:
“The support provided by Future Pathways is vital to help people abused or neglected as children while in care to lead full, healthy and independent lives.
“It’s one of a number of initiatives which the government is funding to support those abused while in care.”
Flora Henderson, Alliance Manager for Future Pathways, recently said:
“This welcome announcement will allow for further continued support to survivors of historical child abuse in care, in Scotland.
“Future Pathways offers tailored support to survivors of abuse or neglect and helps them to lead full, healthy and independent lives. Although over 1,400 survivors have already registered with us, we know there are more people out there who have had similar experiences and who could really benefit from our help and support.
“I would like to highlight the dedication of the Future Pathways team, our partners and importantly, the people we work with – their valued support has contributed enormously to the project’s continued success.”
