Friday the 7th of September is White Balloon Day. 2012 marks the 16th Annual event that’s organised by Bravehearts in an attempt to raise awareness on child sexual assault and help empower survivors to break their silence.
Statistics show that 1 in 5 children are abused before they turn 18, and perhaps even more alarmingly, most child sex offenders are known to the family.
Commercial Manager of White Balloon Day Peter Duffy joined Angus on Breakfast to discuss the significance of the day.
