Back to all events

On the 1st May 2024, the NotMyShame global movement will mark the power of authentic voices from around the world, turning the tables on the silence and shame facing the world on the conversation of Child Sexual Abuse. We invite everyone to take part, making this a Global Awareness Day to impact the wider conversations and future of protecting children, and supporting survivors.

The Town Hall will be lit in white light for the day.

People will wear white ribbons as well as holding a minutes silence.

The day is initiated by local resident, Emma-Jane Taylor, an advocate for survivors of child sex abuse across the world. She encourages survivors to speak up; with a therapist, friend or someone who can listen. Emma-Jane continues to share the deafening silence around the conversation of child sex abuse and reminds survivors that this silence is NOT theirs.
