Loud fence No More Silence Week 2017

Maureen Hatcher's simple act of placing a ribbon on a fence to remember victims of child sex abuse has now morphed into a whole week of activities,

The first Loud Ballarat No More Silence Week gets going from Friday May 19.

It's focussed on education, remembrance and a chance for survivors - and their supporters - to express their feelings.

Maureen says it's important to remember that the ribbons are a symbol of solidarity - and not necessariy a sign that pedophile activity has taken place at that site.
