We Stand

We Stand (formerly know as MOSAC) provides a safe place for parents and carers to come following the trauma of discovering that their child or children have been abused. They offer practical and emotional support in a number of ways.

Lines open: Monday 10am-4pm, Tuesday 10am-2pm and 4pm-6pm, Wednesday 10am-2pm, Thursday 10am-2pm

Advice Sessions: a generic advice and information service to help non-abusing parents and carers find the relevant information.

Advocacy Service: aiming to empower and encourage non-abusing parents and carers to have their voices heard, consider their rights and options, make decisions, gain access to services, and provide information and support when dealing with external agencies. An advocate may also accompany non abusing parents/carers to relevant meetings and case conferences.

Therapeutic Services: Client Counselling, Children and  young people Services; face to face therapy, Child Centred Play Therapy and online support for children and parents too. 

Workshops and Training: A variety of training and workshops provided to support parents to safeguard their children, aid their child’s healing and enhance confidence and parenting skills.
