The CARI Foundation is a registered charity founded in 1989. Our primary aim is to provide a professional, child centred therapy and counselling service to children, families, and groups who have been affected by child sexual abuse.
Alongside this we aim to provide the most up to date education and information service for children, adults and professionals on the dynamics of child sexual abuse, and, moreover, to raise public and political awareness of these issues.
As a non-governmental organisation we operate on a not-for-profit basis ensuring that our services are accessible, regardless of a client's means or situation.

Information and advice for concerned members of the public whose vigilance and awareness are the catalyst to action in child protection, and upon whose support CARI relies. Child protection is everybody's business.
