The tricycle (trike) represents a rite of passage for many children.
A trike opens up the world for a young child; you can’t miss their delight when they experience the mobility, speed and freedom. Learning to ride helps to build confidence, safety, independence, and initiative.
Conversely, child sexual abuse takes away the rites of passage that are essential to a child’s development. It robs them of a sense of safety, freedom, and their right to be a child.
The trike reminds us that adult male survivors were once children. SAMSN walks alongside men and their supporters to restore safety, freedom and self-belief.
SAMSN has been closely monitoring the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak and continues to observe the recommendations by NSW Health and the Commonwealth Government. Our first priority is always the safety of our clients and staff.
Although our physical office is now closed, our dedicated team are working remotely by telephone and email to ensure that we can continue to support survivors and our supporters. We are also looking into what other technology we can use to stay connected during this challenging time.
We appreciate your support and understanding and encourage you stay in touch and contact SAMSN for support.
