  • Sexual Abuse

    I was sexually abused by a Scout leader when I was 12, back in the mid ‘70s – thankfully I only suffered one night, others had it much worse. I had only recently joined the pack and unbeknown to me (and my parents) it was a well known “secret”! I those days we had no one to turn to – your parents wouldn’t believe you.
