Somerset Phoenix Project
Working alongside professionals and supporting children, young people and families affected by sexual abuse.

A specialist service supporting the development of professionals in Somerset. We are here to reduce the negative impact of child sexual abuse (CSA) on the lives of children and families living in Somerset by:

  • offering support, training and signposting to professionals who are supporting children, young people and families affected by CSA
  • supporting parents and carers
  • supporting children and young people.

We work mainly with professionals who already have a relationship with an individual child or family.   

Young people If you are worried or need help call CHILDLINE 0800 1111 or contact us or the Somerset & Avon Rape and Sexual Abuse Support (SARSAS) helpline.

We can only support children and families who live in the Somerset Local Authority area.

Somerset Phoenix Project is a partnership between Barnardo’s and SARSAS (Somerset & Avon Rape and Sexual Abuse Support) commissioned by Somerset County Council.

Please note the Somerset Phoenix Office will be closed during the festive period from Thursday 21st December to Monday 1st January.

The helpline from SARSAS will be closed over the Christmas period between 22nd Dec and 2nd Jan
