About Open Secret

Open Secret is based in Falkirk and provides confidential support to individuals and families whose lives have been affected by childhood abuse and trauma.

As many as one in four young adults have been severely maltreated as children and one in 20 suffered sexual abuse. Open Secret provides counselling and group support for all ages and worked with over 1,000 survivors of abuse last year.

What the judges thought

'Open Secret is successfully tackling challenging health issues, which people are often afraid to speak about. Its work in prisons is particularly innovative, working with prison staff as well as survivors, and its services have delivered impressive outcomes.'
