The simple answer is yes.
More and more people are coming forward with their own stories. Regardless of Jimmy Savile, more people have started on the long journey to freedom. This scandal has brought the problem to the fore.
As a survivor myself i have been very affected by the reports. I have been knocked sideways by all the coverage. But in grounding myself in the knowledge that the abuse has stopped and I’m on the road to recovery.
These brave and courageous men and women who have come forward will beat this thing. The important thing I believe is that the publics understanding of the sheer scale of the problem is becoming apparent.
Maybe the government will now look into more resources for survivors of abuse and more support for the charities who deal with the aftermath.
