Parents Facebook Support group
This group is exclusively for parents/legal guardians who are coping with sibling sexual trauma and abuse within their family, to provide NONJUDGEMENTAL support and hope for one another. We support the healing and recovery for ALL of our children. Sometimes this support means working towards reconciliation and reunification. Sometimes this support means loving and supporting at a distance with the help of others to provide care and supervision. All of our circumstances are unique in many ways, AND we all share the pain, struggle, confusion, and sadness as we love our children and work to do everything in our power to help them heal. We bear the burden of picking up the pieces and putting our families back together, whatever that may look like.
Mosac provides supportive services in a
safe & non-judgemental environment for
non-abusing parents and carers whose
children have been sexually abused.

We also offer a helpline for those that are able to pay: 020 8293 9990 (charges apply) We offer a confidential, supportive, non-judgmental and informative national helpline to all non-abusing parents and carers.

National Clinical Assessment and Treatment Service (NCATS) is a national service that offers assessment, treatment, consultation and training for and about children and young people where there are concerns about harmful sexual behaviour (HSB).
We also offer interventions for parents or carers using a programme called Safe Home, a 12-15 session psycho-educative and therapeutic programme for the parents and carers of young people who have been displayed HSB. It was developed to address recommendations from the NICE HSB guidelines (2016)1 and our HSB framework to work with parents and carers alongside interventions for children and young people.
The Safe Home programme aims to:
improve parents’ or carers' knowledge of harmful sexual behaviour
introduce pathways and risk factors for harmful sexual behaviour
help parents and carers recognise patterns of problematic behaviour and know how to provide support early
provide a safe space for parents and carers to pause and process what has happened, usually for the first time. This might include putting these feelings into words and having them listened to and validated.
