Improve the help/facilites for victims/survivors of abuse/sexual abuse
Responsible department: Department of Health
17,727 sexual crimes against children under 16 were recorded in England and Wales in 2010/11.
An estimated 55,000 children who have experienced sexual abuse receive no therapeutic support each year because of a shortfall in the availability of therapeutic services.
There is only one therapeutic support programme for every 25,000 children living in the UK and many areas provide no therapeutic provision for sexually abused children at all (NSPCC)
Many charities that are out there helping these people are having their budgets cut.
This is a campaign requesting that there should be more facilities in place to HELP survivors receive the care they need. Stop the cuts! CHANGE THE SYSTEM. Help the survivors!!!!! Stop the intrusive black and white ATOS medical questioning for survivors of assault.
