  • Help spread the word - Launch of Police Scotland's 'Information for Adult Survivors of Childhood Abuse' Animation Film

    Created: 29/11/2019, Updated: 05/12/2019

    A new animated film aimed at adult survivors of childhood abuse and people working with survivors has today been launched by Police Scotland. 

    Police Scotland would be extremely grateful for your assistance and support in disseminating and promoting the film, as you deem appropriate, amongst your clients, members of staff and members of the public as part of this campaign as they are keen to ensure that the film receives wide coverage and that, crucially, it is viewed by as many adult survivors, and people working with survivors, as possible.

    The film, which has been produced following extensive consultation with survivors/survivor support services and with funding from Scottish Government, aims to raise awareness amongst adult survivors of how to report childhood abuse to police, the criminal justice process and the existence of survivor support services. It aims to raise awareness amongst adult survivors of how to report childhood abuse to police, the criminal justice process and the existence of survivor support services.

    The animation follows two survivors through the journey of reporting to police whilst focussing on key areas and covering some frequently asked questions. It complements an existing information leaflet for adult survivors of childhood abuse and information on Police Scotland’s website, all of which aim to provide survivors with information to enable them to make an informed choice about whether or not they wish to report such abuse to police, whilst at the same time ensuring that they are signposted to relevant support services.

    Police Scotland is committed to improving its service provision to adult survivors of childhood abuse and working in partnership with statutory partners and providers of survivor support services across Scotland to achieve this. A key element of improving our service is enhancing the provision of information to adult survivors and the film represents an engaging and supportive communication product, which, it is hoped, will reach a wider audience and
    therefore, an increased number of adult survivors.

    The campaign will be evaluated on its conclusion and your feedback would be welcomed.
