Description
Our Purpose
One in Four offers a voice to and support to men and women who have experienced sexual abuse and/or sexual violence and also to their family and friends. In Ireland research has shown that one in four children (27%) will experience sexual abuse before the age of 18. Society has thus far been unwilling to face up to the deep rooted nature of this problem or the sheer scale of the long term damage it leaves in its wake.
Statistics on sexual violence in Ireland can be found in The SAVI Report,which was carried out by the Dublin Rape Crisis and The Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland 2002.

Our Ethos
One in Four exists to give voice to the experience of people who have experienced sexual abuse and/or sexual violence and to provide a space that by its very existence challenges feelings of shame and self blame. In the often perceived hopelessness and despair of such trauma the possibility of meeting another, one who has undertaken that journey themselves, offers hope and encouragement.
One in Four actively seeks and welcomes at all levels of the organisations work the involvement of people who have experienced sexual violence. The creation of a community that bears witness to the isolating and silenced reality of sexual violence fundamentally changes and moves beyond that reality.
