This article explains why Izzy’s Promise was set up and quells some of the myths surrounding the term ‘ritual abuse’ and what it actually means.
A new report – The Silent Minority
This report was initiated after concerns were raised by several organisations at a Glasgow Rape Crisis Training event to members of Izzy’s Promise Staff (formerly T.R.A.S.H.) in February 2007. These organisations working with Asylum Seekers in Scotland expressed fears that some Asylum Seekers were unable to report ritual abuse cases and subsequently were not being granted asylum in the UK.
As a result of these fears T.R.A.S.H. sought funding from Awards for All to commission this report.
