The Ripple Effect Dinner Event
Bringing the discussion of child sexual abuse closer to home
The vast majority of child sexual abuse takes place around the home – committed by people they know, family, relatives and friends.
Why do we feel so uncomfortable confronting this issue?
The Ripple Effect is a play/documentary which explores the wide-ranging damage which can be triggered by incest and family abuse.
In Support of The Ripple Effect this event aims to open up discussion on this taboo subject by gathering key thoughts and bringing the discussion of child sexual abuse closer to home.
