Read up on the different types of abuse, get advice and have a look at the organisations that can help.

Will Adams Festival, Gillingham Park - Saturday 9th September, 11am - 4.30pm

Celebrate the legacy of Will Adams

The festival celebrates the life of Will Adams, who grew up in Gillingham during the Tudor period before becoming an experienced sailor in the Royal Navy. After retiring from the navy, Adams navigated a fleet of five Dutch ships from west Africa; during this hazardous voyage his ship ran aground on the island of Kyushu in Japan, where he was captured, questioned and imprisoned as a pirate. After being released he was ordered to sail to Tokyo. The Shogun was impressed with his knowledge of shipbuilding and navigation and Adams became a trusted aide and diplomatic adviser. As a reward, he was granted the honoured title of Samurai and given a small estate in Hemi, which is now known as Yokosuka.

At the festival you will experience Tudor England and maritime history, as well as Japanese culture in the 17th and the 21st century. There's lots to see and do, including Taiko Meantime Drumming, martial arts, living history and storytelling.

    Kent Cynophobia Classes - Helping Children Overcome a Fear of Dogs

    Kent Cynophobia
    Helping Children who fear dogs

    Cynophobia is basically the fear of dogs. Most people would think it quite irrational to be morbidly afraid of dogs,   But some children are so petrified that it has an enormous impact, not only on their lives but that of their family.

    In extreme cases these families do not go on holiday, or simple outings to the park, or beach. This can have an effect on siblings as their activities can be curtailed. These children may put themselves into dangerous situations in order to avoid a dog, such as running into the road, jumping into water or running away.  Some children are physically sick or worse when coming in sight of a dog.
