Debbie Grafham

A Sister's Secret
  • A Sister's Secret

  • 'I was nine and the big sister. I wanted to keep her safe. He basically promised me that if I let him abuse me, he wouldn't touch my sister again.'

    Debbie Grafham’s childhood had been far from normal, but when she was just nine years old her life changed forever. Debbie discovered that her neighbour was abusing her younger sister, Laraine – and there was a price to pay to make him stop. Alone and scared, she made a decision that was to haunt her life, and send her spiralling out of control. But after nearly forty years of harbouring her shocking secret, Debbie found the courage to tell her sister and together they made the decision to fight for justice.

Debbie Grafham lives with her husband and three children. She works as a care worker and has slowly rebuilt her life, knowing her abuser is finally behind bars. She hopes that by speaking out it will give others victims the courage to find their voice.
