Rape, sexual abuse and sexual exploitation of children is endemic within our society.

Society and individuals within it, need to become more aware of the prevalence and impact of such crimes on victims and take responsibility for the prevention and detection of such abuse, and the facilitation of recovery processes.

CIS’ters was set up in September 1995 by Gillian, a female survivor of childhood sexual abuse by a member of her immediate family.

Our mission is to raise awareness of the existence of sexual abuse during childhood and to highlight the needs of those directly and indirectly affected. We are a peer based organisation and offer adult females, who as female children were sexually abused within a family environment, the opportunity to join CIS’ters as a member.

Please Note: Our website also includes information to help the wider community of victim/survivors, friends and non-abusing family, plus professionals.
