Melton Outreach aims to measure the effectiveness of a community-based approach to raise awareness about the trauma of childhood sexual abuse and the value of counselling in the region. With the support of Melton residents and communities, Quetzal will measure whether their presence in the region increases awareness amongst female survivors.
In 2020-2021, 261 female survivors referred themselves to Quetzal for support. Amongst them, only 6 female survivors from Melton contacted our charity for support. Over the years, the number of referrals from the region remains one of the lowest in Leicestershire.
Through the project, Quetzal plans to use their learning from the Breaking the Silence Initiative and apply them to create an impact in Melton, so that more female survivors and their families are aware of the support available to them.
