Welcome to The Lantern Project

The Lantern Project was established in 2000 to provide support for victims of childhood sexual abuse in Merseyside and the surrounding region, in response to the growing number of victims coming forward after Operation Care and other police investigations into institutional child abuse.

Working in partnership with local GPs, the Police, the Probation Service, Social Services, the Prison Service, Psychology Services and other statutory and non statutory organisations, the Lantern Project has supported hundreds of victims, male and female, from all walks of life, with ages ranging from 8 to 80.

You can contact us by e-mail, phone or contact us through this site.

The knowledge we gained through this work, combined with out own experiences of sexual abuse, has enabled us to develop an effective therapeutic support programme to help victims cope with the complex psychological, physical and social problems that emerge over time, often lasting many years.

An equally important part of our support programme involves working with police, lawyers and the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority, to help victims seek reparation for the harm they have suffered, through both the criminal and civil justice systems, and we have won substantial awards for a number of victims, including in cases where the offenders were deceased, every penny of which went to the victims.

As part of our work to raise awareness of the long-term consequences of sexual abuse, both to the victims themselves and to society as a whole, we have produced a number of information books and films, which are available to view, free of charge, on our website. If you would like a copy of any of our books, they are also available to purchase for a nominal cost, as indicated in the book section.
