Raising Awareness of False Allegations

Home » What We Do » Raising Awareness of False Allegations

Estimated reading time: 1 minute

It is very rare for anyone other than those who have been directly effected by false allegations to truly understand the enormity of what happens to a person psychologically, emotionally and in practical terms following an allegation. Through FACT’s support work we are uniquely placed to not only understand but to build up information and knowledge of the scale of the problem and how it effects society as a whole.

Raising awareness is essential if we are to increase public knowledge of the problem and help reduce it, as well as encouraging better safeguards to be put in place.

We maintain regular contact with:

  • press and media
  • politicians (local, regional, and national)
  • government and non government agencies
  • academics
  • think-tanks
