Quetzal delivers counselling services to support women in breaking the bars and psychological cages of the trauma of childhood sexual abuse. They are also in a path to raise further awareness about the trauma of childhood sexual abuse and the value of counselling in South Asian communities in Leicester City using a community based approach through the Breaking the Silence Initiative.

Through the podcast, Marie described to John Coster and Dr Rob Watson, how through creative storytelling, each one of us in our own capacity can help in breaking the silence for people to eventually find their own voice in our society.

With the extended lockdown happening in Leicester, it is primordial than each of us find ways to communicate valuable information to people in our community that will support their mental and physical health, and to empower each one of us with strength to voice our needs and concerns.

At Quetzal, we hope by listening to the podcast, you’ll be inspired to share your story,contribute to and subscribe to Quetzal voices.

Together, we will amplify the voice and wishes of the community where every women and men who experienced abuse know that if they need and want to, they can access support.

Thanks to the Ministry of Justice’s COVID-19 Response Fund, The Survivors Trust has now a support line open 7 days a week to provide confidential advice, support and information to all survivors of rape or sexual abuse, supporters, and professionals. You can read more about it here.
