A survey of adult survivors of child sexual abuse and their experiences of support services

The research was undertaken in the context of a severe lack of evidence about the support needs of adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse (CSA) in the UK. It is based on an on-line, national survey of nearly 400 survivors, making this one of the largest surveys ever undertaken with this population.

The survey looked at experiences of abuse, satisfaction with different types of service and the availability of information about services.
