The group is releasing its annual report for 2011 today. They supported 933 people and 39 families last year and most of those people had been sexually abused in childhood.
However, some 28 clients were sex offenders who attended rehabilitation programmes.
Executive Director of 1 in 4, Maeve Lewis, says fewer than 5% of sex offenders will ever be convicted of their crimes.
