Survivors of abuse

From an early age, Tiff was sexually abused by her step-father. When Tiff was two years old, she came to live with her foster mum, Dawn Pincott.

After Tiff’s behaviour started to show signs of abuse, Dawn reported Tiff’s behaviour to the Department of Child Services. Despite these reports, the Department still sent Tiff to spend time with her step-father, eventually arranging for her to resume living with him.

“The first good memory I have … is returning home to my sisters, my Mum and of course my Dad,”

“I’ve got justice, I can forgive but I will never forget.”

says Tiff. 

Now, Tiff is determined to make a difference for other vulnerable children and survivors of abuse.
