To those accused and their families:

The trauma involved, when allegations are made that you or your partner have been accused of sexual abuse, can never be underestimated. The need for independent assessment appears to be crucial. Often families are very confused in their feelings, distrustful of statutory agencies and an independent service can help them better understand the nature of sex abuse, whilst at the same time allowing for the possibility that the alleged offender is innocent of the allegations. At other times the alleged offender might be admitting the guilt and will be frightened of the current investigation and the likely outcome of forthcoming criminal and civil proceedings. In these cases an independent assessment can help in obtaining intervention for both the offender and the family.

Many families, whatever the final outcome, are entering a process where they often feel they have little control or information to help them understand the likely outcomes. Fears of custodial sentencing, loss of the children, break up of the adult relationships are all real fears that have to be faced. For an informal discussion on whether or not our services would be suitable for your situation please telephone 01908 225540.
