Step Up provides help for parents of children who have been sexually abused. Step-up currently provides a drop-in centre, a confidential telephone support-line, excursions for the children, their siblings and parents and through the web site a new real-time online chat service and notice board. Step-up is based in Redbridge, Essex but is anxious to advise and assist the establishment of similar local groups and will do their utmost to help parents from other areas in whatever way they can.
The drop-in is held weekly at Parkside Community Centre, during term time only and is a place where parents can come and meet each other and have the opportunity to share their experiences and feelings. Car parking is free and for details of local buses please call our helpline.
