Tackling abuse with Bristol Rovers

Southmead Project CEO Dr Mike Peirce MBE and volunteers will be putting in an appearance at Bristol Rovers Football Club during a special event to help celebrate their winning partnership.
Bristol Rovers recently named Southmead Project as their first charity partner of the season and will work with us throughout the season to help raise awareness of the services we provide to adult survivors of child abuse.
Mike will be stepping out on to the pitch at half time on Saturday 9 February to tell supporters about the vital work we carry out to help survivors reclaim their lives.
As part of the event, our volunteers will be taking donations throughout the day and trained counsellors will be available to anyone who feels they may need to talk.
Mike and the whole of the team would like to thank the Bristol Rovers management, players and fans for welcoming us into your sporting home. Your open acknowledgement and acceptance of us and the pain and suffering of those who have experienced child abuse, is wholly indicative of the inclusive roots of the club.
