Planning a CLEAR future


Leading Cornish child and young persons’ support charity, CLEAR (Children Linked to and Experiencing Abusive Relationships), is growing at a fast rate following recent funding.

CLEAR, which has been established for six years, moved into the Health & Wellbeing Innovation Centre at Treliske this week, which will prove a more suitable and accessible base for the charity.

Recently awarded funding from Children in Need, CLEAR provides therapy for children aged up to ten years that have been impacted by domestic or sexual violence.

It recently began delivering workshops in Bodmin College, Pool Academy and Camborne School of Science following a successful programme with over 800 students from Treviglas School.

In addition, the charity has begun working with Penryn-based communications company, Type, which is managing the charity’s PR campaign.

CLEAR CEO, Simon Carpenter, said: “We are really thrilled to have been awarded funding from Children in Need and to have the support of Type and the Innovation Centre.

“With a topic such as child abuse, many people are afraid to really stand up to it. It is good to see such support for the charity and to really begin changing attitudes and raising awareness for this important cause.”
