Face Masks and Covering can be a triggering experience for individuals who experienced abuse. The Survivors Trust learnt this through their helpline and conducted a small survey. They found that a third of survivors who responded confirmed this.
The Survivors Trust created some tips and downloadable images for survivors who may not feel comfortable wearing a mask.
People are not required to prove they are exempt. However, The Survivors Trust created the images below that people can save to their telephone or print out should they need them – they are available also on here
