Acts Fast charity aims to help sexual abuse families

Parents of children who have been sexually abused are set to benefit from a new support charity.

Acts Fast, based in Bournemouth, Dorset, was established to help those struggling to cope when a child reveals they have been sexually abused, often by another member of the family,

The group's founders believe they are offering vital help to alleviate trauma, isolation and distress for parents.

They say parents often have nowhere to turn to for help when they discover their children have been harmed.
