Siani Driver - Something to say

Siani Driver

I have something to say.

I grew up in an emotionally, physically and neglectful, abusive home.

I don’t have any contact with my mother and my father is dead.

I was groomed and experienced sexual assault between 14-16.

I was raped at 18.

I endured abusive relationships one after the other into my 30s.

I have chronic mental and physical illnesses as a result of these layers of trauma throughout my life.

I did try to prosecute my groomer from my teenage years but was told that despite my diary evidence and strong testimony, it wouldn’t be “in the public interest”.

I’ve not bothered reporting any of the rest of my abuse, as I know it wouldn’t be worthwhile.

All I can do is bring my kids up to be aware of the dangers of some adults, aware of consent, and self-confident enough to recognise and speak out about abuse.

I just hope it’ll be enough.
