Would you like a doughnut?

Posted: 23 November 2015

When her neighbour, Bill, offered Ella some doughnuts at his house, she eagerly accepted.

What she didn't realise is that Bill had another motive. Ella was later found cowering under Bill's bed, scared and abused.

Thanks to CLEAR training, the local Child Protection Committee knew how to preserve evidence, engage the police and pursue legal justice for Ella. As a result of the skills learnt and action taken, Bill has since been convicted of her rape.

Ella is now safe with her family, back at school and rediscovering childhood.
