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

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.

More details

In memory of our 13 year old Brother Declan to implement Declan's Law. As it's a moral duty for CPS & police to provide counselling to child sexual abuse victims without fear it may affect their trial. Declan was raped by a paedophile. Our mum begged CPS, Police & Local Authority to provide counselling for her children but was told this would contaminate court evidence.Our brother Declan took his own life age 13. His death could have been prevented "Declan's Law" would ensure future CSA victims get the support they deserve when it’s needed
