Sophie Young

Please Will Someone Help Me?

Please Will Someone Help Me?


Sophie Young was born into a dysfunctional family, with a violent mother and father. Sophie was routinely neglected and harmed, starved and left to fend for herself. Social workers were often involved but, despite numerous visits and extensive reports, nothing was ever done.

When Sophie was six, her life took another horrible turn: her adored grandfather began to sexually abuse her.

With full access to her social work files, Sophie tells her heartbreaking story, showing how those who are meant to help children can be blind to the reality of their lives; but how, ultimately, love conquers all.
