"I contacted the Foundation after watching a recent BBC documentary on football abuse. The Foundation has been brilliant from the initial call I received through to the volunteer. The one-to-one support is what I needed having been pushed away from other organisations I feel were dysfunctional and unsupportive in what they were offering."
"I feel that I am normal. The therapy has changed my entire life... I have known for years, I was in a toxic relationship... by the end of the 12 weeks, I had found the confidence to end the relationship, and I have never looked back. I have also found the strength, to move out of the area I live in, to start a new life for me and my child. I don’t need support calls anymore, as I now have the strategies to manage, but I know you are always there. Thank you isn’t enough!"
"Without the involvement of The Maggie Oliver Foundation and their numerous daily phone calls and emails, our granddaughter’s plight would have been buried and forgotten forever. I dread to think of how many victims and families have indeed gone by the wayside because they never knew of the wonderful ‘Maggie Oliver Foundation’."
STATEMENT ON OLDHAM COUNCIL DEBATE ON CHILD SEXUAL ABUSE
In Oldham Council’s meeting on 12th July, Maggie Oliver and The Maggie Oliver Foundation were mentioned in a debate relating to child sexual abuse and exploitation. We know that use of our name and Maggie’s for other’s agendas can do untold damage to survivors and their recovery journeys, as such we feel it is important to our clarify our position in our own words.
Do you have a passion for supporting victims and survivors of sexual violence to access justice? Do you believe in empowering survivors to share their experiences of our broken criminal justice system to play a vital role in improving it? Are you an experienced caseworker looking for your next challenge? If the answer to these questions is yes, then you could be the next key person to join our dedicated team.
Monday was a big day! The Maggie Oliver Foundation was invited to take along some survivors of child sexual abuse and exploitation by “grooming gangs” to attend a private meeting with the Prime Minister and Home Secretary. The meeting was to discuss their new initiative to tackle “grooming gangs”, announced on Monday.
Please note, our team are taking a short break over Christmas as will not be checking emails regularly. We'll respond once we are back on Tuesday 3rd January. Thank you for understanding.
