That the Parliament recognises what it sees as the incredible work of Ayr’s Stacey Wheeldon; understands that Stacey has set up a charity support group, Childhood Abuse Support Team, to support survivors of childhood abuse and provide a safe space for those who have experienced childhood trauma to talk; believes that Stacey has set up this group following her own traumatic experience, providing people the space they need to be heard and start their healing process; understands that, on 8 July 2022, Stacey opened a local office and safe space in Ayr where survivors can book in for an appointment; commends Stacey on her positive work, on the back of a difficult time working to support fellow survivors, and wishes her all the best going forward.
