CLEAR supports children, young people and families in Cornwall who are experiencing or who are vulnerable to abusive or exploitative relationships. We are a not-for-profit charitable organisation, who are reliant on funding and charitable donations. This provides a vital service including counselling services, educational workshops in Cornish schools, and one-to-one support for young people and families who are experiencing or who are vulnerable to Child sexual exploitation (CSE).
Some members of staff are doing a sponsored 24 hour no-sleep over the 30th June/1st July as part of a fund raising group to support our service. The 24 hour 'no sleep' was the idea of Liz D, who works as part of the CSE team at CLEAR. 'I was awake one night, unable to sleep and thought that this might be a good idea as a fundraiser for the charity. Staff members, family and friends have been invited to participate in the event and the funds raised will be used to extend our services for children, young people and families living in Cornwall. This could mean we are able to offer counselling services to families who do not have access to funding, or extending support to existing clients'.
Quotes from young people who have accessed our service:
Getting all my feelings out - not staying inside of me.
I am not as angry anymore.
It helped me to just relax and feel comfortable in talking about things at home and things in general.
I feel CLEAR has helped me become a better person and understand my emotions a lot more. I feel with the counselling I have also become more confident and a fearless person.
