What We Do
To achieve our aims, we have a multi-faceted approach whereby we educate, inform, and support, those affected by child sexual abuse; as well as legislators, educators, healthcare professionals, and the general public.
Specifically, we are currently designing a piece of research that will more accurately reflect the landscape of Irish child sexual abuse. Once this data is collected, it will be shared with the general public. Our belief is that we can’t tackle an issue until we know the depth, length, and breadth of it. Currently, we do not have good data on the prevalence of Irish CSA.
We offer support groups, regionally, for parents who were sexually abused as children.
Separately, we have support groups for the intimates of adults who were sexually abused as children. We recognise, and understand, that relationships are difficult for those who were affected by CSA. More details on these are available here.
In addition, Dair provides specialised, trauma-informed training to healthcare professionals, educators, and legislators.
