About this deal

Dana takes us through her childhood to adulthood and all the horrors she encounters, some of it is very hard to read and disturbing. Many primary and secondary schools already invite organisations in to talk about child safety andor work with at-risk children.

At just five years old, Dana Fowley learned that there was no one she could trust and nowhere she could escape to. A group of up to 15 beasts preyed on Dana and another girl at houses in Edinburgh and a Perthshire caravan park. After a childhood of abuse she stood up for herself and her family and brought the people behind her torment to justice. Her grandfather, William Dunsmore, was released from prison in 2009 after serving three-and-a-half years of a five-year sentence. She smiles when I ask if she ever worries she'll subconsciously self-destruct and ruin her relationship with Paul.Dana Fowley suffered horrendously at the hands of her grandfather, mother, and up to 15 men who abused her and her sister for more than 12 years. But the fact that this quiet, shy pupil couldn’t even confide in the teachers she trusted most is a powerful message to child-protection systems that waiting and hoping for disclosures is often a lost cause. Een treurig verhaal,van een auteur die toch vrij sterk in haar schoenen staat en gesteund wordt door een goede partner. In Sheffield, Darren Bristow has set up Eyes Open Creative, a newly established community interest company that has developed an educational resource pack. She claimed she recently met Thomas at the St James Centre in Edinburgh where he told her she was "welcome" to attend a September ceremony in the Capital.

We complain so often about the trivial things in our lives that annoy us or get us down, but having read Dana's story of her family's cruellest of betrayals, I say that many such issues significantly pale in comparison. To be abused by those a person is meant to be able to trust the most and for so long, from such a young age, Dana proves she is a far stronger and better person than any of those sadistic people she had no choice but to be related to. Dana’s silence echoed that of other young survivors interviewed for the schools booklet See Us - Hear Us! Children as young as 10 are being groomed, sexually exploited and passed around organised networks of older men in the UK. Now she has offered to go into schools to help young people lose the overwhelming shame, stigma and fear that so effectively silence them.That the girls finally raised the courage to testify against their mother and see her sent to prison for twelve years is in itself not surprising; the fact that the author still visits her mother and loves her is a gobsmacking revelation considering the levels of depravity and abuse she subjected her daughters to. I’m not dead yet and I’m making sure there are videos left so if I do die there is proof of what happened. A campaign to prevent teenage rape was launched on 5 March, just as fresh Home Office figures revealed that a third of girls aged 13 to 17 have been the victim of some form of violence from a partner. I started to develop an act that I would perfect over the years: pretending that I came from a good, loving family,” Dana says.
