A LIFELINE charity in East Kilbride for victims of child sex abuse is battling to survive following a devastating break-in.
SAVI Kids (Sexual Assault Victims Initiative) was forced to suspend its vital services following the brazen raid towards the end of last year which saw its town centre base ransacked and office equipment destroyed – all for just £38 in stolen cash.
For the last eight years, the specialist support service – the only one of its kind in Scotland – has helped thousands of vulnerable children and their families.
The charity was available 24/7 with its own dedicated helpline.
But due to a lack of funding, the helpline was no longer feasible and SAVI Kids is now struggling to stay open.
