WHAT WE DO
It is only those who have suffered from wrongful allegations of abuse, and their families and friends, who truly know how devastating they can be and how the damage can remain with them for the rest of their lives.
FACT is a UK based "not for profit" organisation run by a national committee and volunteers. It was founded more than 16 years ago to help innocent victims of wrongful allegations of abuse in a work setting.
We are here to help those who presently or have previously worked in positions of trust whether paid or unpaid, and their families. We try to help them to cope with the stress and trauma of wrongful allegations of abuse, and move their lives forward.
If you need someone to talk to call our HELPLINE on 0843 289 2016
INFORMATION AND SUPPORT
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 both in the UK and internationally. We hold two conferences a year: times for mutual support, for both victims and relatives and for them to access expert views on ways of responding to their problems. A time for people to know they are not alone. As many victims of wrongful allegations feel isolated in the wider community they find it a very important part of recovery to share their experiences with those who understand what they are going through and whom they can trust.
