Government funding for survivors of childhood abuse

The Scottish government is extending funding for support for adult survivors of childhood abuse.

Future Pathways, which works with organisations from the statutory and voluntary sectors, to provide support such as education or training courses, therapeutic services or psychological trauma counselling, has been granted up to £9 million from the Scottish government.

Mental Health Minister Clare Haughey said: “The support provided by Future Pathways is vital to help people abused or neglected as children while in care to lead full, healthy and independent lives.

“It’s one of a number of initiatives which the government is funding to support those abused while in care,” she added.

Flora Henderson, Alliance Manager for Future Pathways, said the funding will enable continued support to survivors of historical child abuse in care, in Scotland.

“Future Pathways offers tailored support to survivors of abuse or neglect and helps them to lead full, healthy and independent lives. Although over 1,400 survivors have already registered with us, we know there are more people out there who have had similar experiences and who could really benefit from our help and support,” added Flora Henderson.
