Thanks to National Lottery Community Funding, The Flying Child is now offering three different groups for survivors of Child Sexual Abuse (CSA).The Flying Child groups are for wellbeing and not therapy. Our aim is to provide a supportive space for people who have experienced Child Sexual Abuse. When we have the opportunity to make connections within the survivor community we build strength, solidarity and voice, and we reduce feelings of isolation.
Online Writing Group (evening)
Our ONLINE WRITING GROUP is facilitated by Patricia Debney and Sophie Olson. It is a 6 week course. Each session is 2 hrs long. This is not a therapy group – the emphasis is on creative writing – you can expect writing exercises and online company with other survivors of CSA. The Flying Child have partnered with SARSAS who provide wellbeing support throughout each session.
In-Person Art Group (daytime)
Our IN-PERSON ART GROUP is held in Woking, Surrey (UK). It is facilitated by Kate, an experienced art group leader, and co-facilitated by a survivor with lived experience of CSA. It is a 9 week course. Each session is 1.5 hrs long. The emphasis is on creativity – you can expect art, chat and company with other survivors of CSA. This group is suitable for people who have never tried art before and for people who have.

Our IN-PERSON PEER SUPPORT PROGRAMME is held in Woking, Surrey (UK). It is therapist facilitated (although not a therapy group), and co-facilitated by a CSA lived experience support worker.
