The awareness and prevention of child abuse is up to each of us.

Many of you will already be aware that April is Child Abuse Awareness and Prevention month.

I have decided to contribute all profits from the sale of my biography “{Empty Chairs} during the month of April to ISPCAN the International Society for the Prevention of Child Abuse and Neglect. 

They are a world wide non denominational and non profit organization that train counselors and field officers working amongst the survivors of abuse. 

Their main aim is to prevent it from occurring in the first instance. 

If you are thinking of purchasing my book please hold off until April.

I am also available should anyone care to have me do a guest blog on awareness and who to turn to in the event you have a problem that needs discussion.

It is undeniably a very difficult topic to approach. Please be aware; I will NOT take part in any witch hunts. This is not what I am about. 

However I will gladly offer my time to anyone anywhere that wants to help raise awareness of this world wide tragedy and how to deal with it if ever confronted.


  1. I would like to offer my support should you need it. I was a child welfare worker for many years and have also been a foster parent for a severely abused child. My partner is an expert in child welfare and attachment. So glad you're doing this.

  2. This is brilliant cause, I didn't know about April being child abuse awareness month. We have to support these causes otherwise the wheels of cruelty continue to turn. Good for you.
