Child Centred Play Therapy - We have a small budget to provide play therapy to a child
whose parent is already being supported by us. Play therapy is a holistic approach, using play
and art as a means of ‘helping’ the physical, spiritual, emotional and cognitive aspects, both
conscious and unconscious, taking account of the past, present and future of the whole child.
Advocacy and Specialist Advice Service - Mosac offers practical support to carers who
are dealing with external agencies such as (but not exclusively) social services, the courts,
housing offices and the police. Our advocates can attend meetings with clients; help them
with paperwork and bureaucracy where necessary.
Our information service - includes a wide range of leaflets, books, videos, audiotapes and
a National database of other agencies and services for referral when necessary. This is
helpful to families and agencies working with families affected by child sexual abuse.
