language matters

It can be tricky as professionals to know what to say, when to say it and how. This can sometimes lead to saying nothing at all, which doesn't help anyone and often leaves young people feeling not believe, unheard and worried.

Barnardo's Core Priority Team have created a resource called Language Matters, as a guide for professionals when supporting children and families who have experienced sexual trauma.


The guide can be found HERE 


If you'd like advice and guidance on how to best use the guide, you can contact us for support.
