Phoenix Project Somerset

The Somerset Phoenix Project is a specialist support service for children and young people aged 5-18 and their families, in Somerset, who have been affected by childhood sexual abuse (CSA).

It is a small service covering Somerset, excluding BANES. Our remit is to support and train professionals, who are already supporting children and young people affected by childhood sexual abuse (CSA). However, we do have a small resource to provide 1:1 support and counselling to a very small amount of children.

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