The National Association for People Abused in Childhood - NAPAC

NAPAC grew out of a lack of an integrated national body providing help and support to adults who have experienced childhood abuse.

In early January 1997 a group of approximately 100 people met in London to discuss the idea of a new national organisation for people abused in childhood. Represented at the meeting were organisations supporting people who have been abused, academics and professionals working in the area of child abuse and people with personal experiences of childhood abuse.

The meeting was set up by Peter Saunders; who had been actively promoting this idea since 1995. Many people heard about the meeting after getting in touch with Peter as the result of an article in The Times, which featured his story of childhood abuse and the difficult task he faced in finding help for himself as an adult.

The result of the meeting was that a Steering Committee was elected, made up of individuals committed to seeing the idea of a National Organisation succeed. Trustees and volunteers for NAPAC currently include people who have direct experiences of childhood abuse and professionals working in the area of child abuse.
