Make a difference to the lives of children affected by Child Sexual Abuse (CSA)

CARI is dependent on State funding from the HSE and other statutory agencies

and on voluntary contributions raised through community and corporate fundraising. More.

Child Sexual abuse is a serious crime

Child sexual abuse occurs when an adult uses his or her power and authority to force or persuade a child to take part in sexual activities for his/her gratification or sexual arousal, or for that of others. More

    1 in 5 children are affected by child sexual abuse in Ireland.

    There are currently over 100 children on our waiting list.
