Houses of Parliament hosts Wall of Silence
We start 2018 with some fantastic news from our good friends at Southmead Project. Over the last couple of years, the charity has curated the Wall of Silence – a touring exhibition including images, poems and stories from victims and survivors of child abuse. The exhibition has travelled around the country – from City Hall London to the Avon and Somerset Police headquarters – and has played an vital role in raising awareness about child abuse and championing the services that organisations like Southmead Project provides in helping survivors.
The charity has confirmed that the exhibition will now spend a week in the Upper Waiting Hall at the Houses of Parliament, commencing on Monday 16 April. This is testament to the tireless work of outgoing CEO Dr Mike Peirce MBE, who paddled to Parliament last September to deliver a letter to the Prime Minister, Theresa May, calling for an urgent review of charity funding [watch the film here].
