Closed petition Make it mandatory for Police & CPS to provide counselling to ALL victims of CSA
To ensure the Police and Crown Prosecution Service provide all victims of child sexual abuse with counselling & support before during & after trial. This is in gov legislation, but the CPS & Police still advise victims to the contrary in order to avoid contamination of evidence. This needs to end.
There is a moral duty for CPS and police to provide counselling to victims without fear it may affect their trial or justice. My brother Declan was raped by a paedophile. Before the trial my mum begged CPS, Police & Local Authority to provide support for her children but was told this would contaminate court evidence. My brother 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
