National Association for People Abused in Childhood produces first Impact Report

Holding hands

Enable Law are proud to be in partnership with NAPAC (the National Association for People Abused in Childhood). NAPAC offers support to adult survivors of all types of childhood abuse, including physical, sexual, emotional abuse or neglect.

NAPAC has launched their first impact report. It looks back at the year 2019-2020, whilst the Covid-19 pandemic was impacting survivors and services. It is a unique insight into their vital work during such an unprecedented time.

The report details the steps that survivors make to recovery, the range of advocacy, professional training and awareness-raising activities NAPAC undertakes, and the core services NAPAC delivers to survivors. Some of the key impacts of 2019-2020 included:

  • 127,477 people directly reached through our NAPAC survivor support services
  • 8,621 people were supported by phone
  • 1,649 emails replied to by our survivor support services
  • 3,576 hours of individual emotional support provided by telephone and email
  • 30 NAPAC support groups have been delivered across the UK
  • 236 hours of support were given to each survivor in support groups
  • 505 professionals trained in trauma-informed practice

The full report can be read here. 

This report shows firstly what an incredible job NAPAC are doing to support survivors of childhood abuse. However, it also demonstrates the significant level of services that are needed.  I hope that NAPAC can continue to deliver, develop and increase their services to survivors over the next year, as the Impact Report shows just how important this service is.
