Wall of Silence logo

The Office of Police and Crime Commissioner and Institute for Public Safety, Crime and Justice (IPSCJ) will bring Wall of Silence art exhibition to the University of Northampton next week, in order to encourage discussions around the subject of child abuse and child sexual exploitation.

The highly acclaimed exhibition, aimed at children aged 14 and over seeks to end the stigma of suffering sexual abuse and encourage survivors to speak out.

Wall of Silence first opened in January this year and is owned by the Southmead Project, a charity that gives support to sexual abuse survivors.

The art work will be available for public viewing between 8:30am and 4:30pm throughout November, while visiting outside these hours can be arranged by contacting Jonathon Delaney at the University of Northampton on Jonathon.delaney@northampton.ac.uk.

Any schools who wish to book to view the exhibit can email Julie Bedster on

Anyone who has been affected by sexual abuse can contact Northamptonshire Police on or 999, or the Northamptonshire Multi-Agency Safeguarding Hub (MASH) on 0300 126 1000.
