Recently, 11/June/2018 addition of the liverpool Echo Former Southport MP John Pugh, now a ward councillor, said: “Paul and his partner have been astoundingly brave. They have been to hell and back with Paul having to deal not only with profoundly disturbing family matters but the knowledge that the agencies that should have protected him let him down. Only his courage and persistence has enabled him to survive.”

‘Little Boy Wonder’ which was self-published on Amazon, takes an unflinching look at Paul’s life growing up in Nottingham.

Paul and Marie Kay want all victims and survivors of CSA to get the upmost compassion and respect that they truly deserve, and will continue to campaign for all victims and survivors of CSA. Please view our Time-line

We are fighting the Government to place procedures in place for victims and survivors, the emphasis “Justice” Care and compassion for all victims and survivors where Police investigations prove crimes were committed against them are then given the “Justice” Of admittance of liability by the said authorities.

The Government should provide a fund for these said victims and survivors. I’m a survivor and I haven’t seen a penny of it despite being a NHS patient on the mental health register. To show that they are taking full responsibility for the victims and survivors presently suffering. To ensure that this impacts on future generations to protect their children.

We aim to ensure victims and survivors are treated with the compassion and respect they truly deserve, and Government have a duty to ensure this is given the upmost urgency.

This is a call for everyone to please support us.

We are a voice of many and we intend on getting louder and louder. Please follow us on Little boy wonder Twitter

We victims and survivors need to be strong together, the best way we can do that is: Transparency is a positive sign, Ignorance is just a choice, Forgiveness is a path, and closure is the destination we all thrive for. standing together is the only thing that keeps us from falling apart. You never know how strong you are, until being strong is the only choice you have left.

Abuse during childhood:

Findings from the Crime Survey for England and Wales, year ending March 2016
The 2015 to 2016 Crime Survey for England and Wales ran for the first time a module of questions asking adults whether they were abused as a child. The analyses of these questions covering psychological, physical, and sexual abuse as a child.

A new module of questions included in the Crime Survey for England and Wales (CSEW) between 1 April 2015 and 31 March 2016 asked adult respondents aged 16 to 59 whether they had experienced a range of abuse while a child. The questions were restricted to abuse carried out by an adult and included psychological, physical, and sexual abuse and also having witnessed domestic violence or abuse in the home.

The survey showed that 9% of adults aged 16 to 59 had experienced psychological abuse, 7% physical abuse, 7% sexual assault and 8% witnessed domestic violence or abuse in the home. With the exception of physical abuse, women were significantly more likely to report that they had suffered any form of abuse asked about during childhood than men.

This was most marked with regard to any form of sexual assault, where women were 4 times as likely as men to be a survivor of such abuse during childhood (11% compared with 3%)

Women (3%) were significantly more likely than men (1%) to experience sexual assault by rape or penetration (including attempts) during childhood. This equates to an estimated 567,000 adult women aged 16 to 59 having experienced this type of abuse during their childhood, compared with an estimated 102,000 adult men aged 16 to 59

The proportions of adults reporting experience of abuse during childhood tended to increase with age. For example, adults aged 16 to 24 and 25 to 34 reported lower levels of any sexual assault (3% and 5%) than those aged 45 to 54 and 55 to 59 (both 9%). It is difficult to determine whether this indicates a reduction in the prevalence of child abuse in more recent years or whether it is due to survivors being more willing to disclose past abuse the further in time they are away from the experience.

Almost half (42%) of adults who had survived abuse during childhood had suffered 2 or more different types of abuse. The type of abuse most likely to be experienced on its own was sexual assault, with over half of all survivors of sexual assault experiencing no other form of abuse.

Perpetrators were most likely to be a parent for those that had suffered psychological abuse (father, 35% and mother, 40%) or physical abuse (father, 39% and mother, 29%). In contrast, survivors of sexual assault by rape or penetration reported that the perpetrator was most likely to be a friend or acquaintance (30%) or other family member (26%). For other types of sexual assault, the perpetrator was most likely to be a stranger (42%). For sexual assault by rape or penetration, male victims (15%) were more likely than females (4%) to report that they had been abused by a person in a position of trust or authority, such as a teacher, doctor, carer or youth worker.

Additional information was collected from adults who had survived sexual assault by rape or penetration during childhood. Around 3 in 4 victims had not told anyone about the abuse at the time it happened, and the most common reasons cited for not disclosing the abuse were embarrassment or humiliation, or thinking that they would not be believed. In my case it was also the Stigma and Taboo attached to it all.
