Stepping Out Board Members

Stepping Out Board Members

The Royal Commission into Childhood Sexual Abuse has raised awareness of a terrible side to humanity but, at the same time, shown the resilience of those who speak out. While the statistics are very disturbing – 1 in 4 girls are sexually abused and 1 in 7 boys - there is help out there with organisations such as the Stepping Out Program Inc. 

Stepping Out is a small, not-for-profit, registered charity that was established to support the process of recovery for women and men who are survivors of childhood sexual abuse. The program seeks to empower survivors to achieve independance within their community through support, case management, counselling, group programs, information, advocacy and referral.

Stepping Out provides group programs to survivors such as Trauma Sensitive Yoga, Money Matters, Rediscovering Life or Power of Possibilities.  All are designed to give survivors tools to draw on so they can more fully participate in life. 

This community organisation is particularly important to AFYF as Carron volunteers her time and expertise on the board as treasurer.

The program is currently looking for new board members to help support and continue this important work. If you are interested or want to know more details please contact Carron on carron@afyf.com.au or Lorraine on lorraine.a.baldacchino@gmail.com

Learn more about this vital program and the work they do here.
