Breakthrough Christmas Appeal 2018
More than 1 in 4 people in the UK have experienced abuse in childhood or other forms of trauma. For many, the impact of trauma can be severe and life-long, unless they are able to access the right sort of help.
Christmas and New Year, with all the family and social pressures can be incredibly difficult for survivors of trauma, with many people experiencing isolation, hopelessness and emotional crisis.
Every £25 we raise helps Breakthrough provide one low-cost session of specialist psychotherapy for survivors of trauma or childhood abuse.
