Charity description

Family Matters logo
Family Matters UK Charity offers counselling and support to victims of rape and sexual abuse throughout Kent.

If you have been subjected to sexual abuse and rape, one of your biggest challenges will be taking the decision to talk to someone. At Family Matters we know this can seem an enormous and daunting step.Established in 1990, we are a specialist charity and one of the largest providers of childhood sexual abuse and rape therapy in the country.Our work extends across Kent and South East London and we help over 4000 people each year, so we know about the isolation, we understand the loneliness and we have the knowledge and expertise to help. Anxiety and fear are among the most common emotions experienced by the abused. But these feelings do become easier and people can, and do, successfully go on to explore their past and its links with today in making sense of recurring problems. Family Matters achieves this through a number of ways but always with sensitivity and by providing access to a team of qualified and highly experienced counsellors.
