Make it mandatory for Police & CPS to provide counselling to ALL victims of CSA

Petition Details

Make it mandatory the Police & Crown Prosecution Service provide ALL victims of child sexual abuse with counselling & support before during & after trial without prejudicing justice. This is in gov legislation, but the CPS & Police still advise victims it can affect the trial. This needs to end.

Additional Information

It is a moral duty for CPS & police to provide counselling to CSA victims without fear it may affect their trial.

Declan was raped by a paedophile. His mum begged CPS, Police & Local Authority to provide counselling for her children but was told this would contaminate court evidence. Declan took his own life at 13. His death could have been prevented. "Declan's Law" would ensure future CSA victims get the support they deserve when it’s needed.
