The person I talked to about what’s going on at home didn’t believe me. What should I do now?

Please talk to someone else that you trust. This could be a family member, your teacher, a youth club leader or your best mate’s mum. You’ve been very brave already in speaking out – it’s scary telling someone the first time, and it’s not your fault they didn’t believe you, so please do try again, and speak to someone else you feel you can trust. It’s important that the abuse stops and that you are safe.

If you feel there is no-one else you can talk to, you could try ringing one of the helplines.
