Did You Know...

1 in 5 of all calls to police in the UK are domestic abuse related

21% of UK children are impacted by direct abuse or witnessing it in their homes

1 in 6 of every UK homelessness case is caused by abuse

Commonplace violent abuse of women and girls in porn has changed perceptions around intimate relationships

The conviction rate for rape is 1.8%

The conviction rate for child sexual abuse is 3%

The average police investigation involving abuse is over 2 years long

Victims are instructed to NOT seek therapy until after the trial, due to a precedent in "witness coaching by a therapist" which was successfully used to defend a serial rapist in the UK

The unhealed trauma caused by abuse is spreading and escalating through every generation. When we put these statistics together, it's easy to see how one impacts another. The way forward is clear. To tackle a problem this huge, we need to work together

Join us and discover the root causes of abuse in our communities and the biggest obstacles to healing, support and justice.

Let us share solutions to the biggest problems faced in this sector.

An event to heal the divide between those who have experienced abuse and professionals working to protect us.

Clear Path UK (CIC) is a coalition of survivor and professional-led services that are pooling resources and research to create legislation and educated abuse reform.

To fix a problem, we believe we must first acknowledge it and discover its root causes. “We must stop pulling people out of the water. We must go upstream and find out why they are falling in.” - Desmond Tutu

At Clear Path UK we now know why. We have also identified realistic, achievable solutions.

With prevention, acknowledgment, trust and healing at the core of everything we do, we aim to revolutionise the way abuse is tackled in the UK and engineer a progressive, achievable and sustainable system.

Join us at Clear Path UK Conference this October.

That is where 'Something to Say' began.


Charissa Cooke

Campaigner for sexual assault prevention, justice and support
Learn More

Support to report.

Charissa speaks about how she was groomed and raped as a teenager but because the people she disclosed to didn't believe her, she was convinced that the authorities wouldn't listen either.
She was shamed into silence.
As a result it wasn't until she was in her 30s that she finally reported the offences to the police.
As an adult she set up a TikTok account to share her experiences in an effort to raise awareness. After receiving thousands of comments & messages by other child victims, she began to support others who had been abused too.
Her honest & nurturing approach struck a chord & her account has now gained over 90k followers, with thousands of victims reaching out to Charissa for help.

Why Not Gift A Virtual Ticket?

All gifted tickets will be distributed by Clear Path UK to survivors of abuse.

The Four Cornerstones of Healing

This event is designed to help us to reach more people with our message and mission.

We also raise funds though the conference to deliver The Four Cornerstones of Healing programme to survivors for free.

After escaping abuse the majority of survivors often suffer with debilitating trauma-induced issues. Claire created our programme to enable survivors to access trauma-informed healing tools that are otherwise unavailable in the UK.

This means that they can understand and manage their triggers, take back control of their lives and flourish beyond the trauma and abuse. We aim to make valuable, trauma-informed but inaccessible healing resources readily and freely available to survivors of abuse.

The successful pilot of our healing from trauma and abuse programme has been delivered for the past year and comes in two formats;

A four-hour workshop. (Venues have included domestic abuse refuges and community centres.)

A 10 week interactive programme delivered virtually or in person for one and a half hours each week with exercises and goals for service users to achieve at each stage.

The programme focuses on teaching how to understand obstacles and triggers to develop healthy coping mechanisms and life skills.

There are four cornerstones or technique groups, which used together are powerful in building a strong foundation for healing and post-traumatic growth. They follow on from and solidify each other, to enable survivors of abuse to not only manage triggers and create coping mechanisms for living life after abuse, but to empower them to move beyond their abuse into a happy, peaceful and fulfilled life.
