CLEAR and CRASAC Services July 2018
From July 2018, the way that people are supported through the Safer Cornwall domestic abuse and sexual violence (DASV) pathways is changing. The service was retendered as part of much larger single contract for delivery of DASV services for all ages through the Safer Cornwall Partnership. The new service is led by First Light, CLEAR and CRASAC are not part of this referral pathway.
We continue to provide a full range of therapy for children and young people linked to or experiencing abuse. Our therapy services can be spot-purchased by organisations or individuals and we have opportunities to part or fully-fund some children and young people according to need, through a range of grant funding.
Support for children, young people and families is our upmost priority and we will do everything we can to make the transition to the new provider of services. All new referrals through the DASV Pathway will be directed to First Light. Any children currently supported by CLEAR who are funded through the Safer Cornwall contract will continue to be supported until they have completed their therapy.
Our Clear4Schools Programme will continue to be available to schools across Cornwall, including our new Peer Support program, funded by the Big Lottery.
Our continuing adult and family services include psycho-education support for parents and carers; therapy and counselling for victims and survivors of abuse, including child sexual exploitation; and therapeutic support to help people who are unable to return to work due to trauma-related stress and anxiety.
We continue to build on the strengths of CLEAR and CRASAC, including our Learning and Professional Development Programmes and look forward to launching our new Centre of Excellence in 2019.
