If you have been wrongfully accused read this fact sheet now and our other fact sheets here
FACT abhors abuse of children and adults whether sexual, physical or emotional abuse. However not all allegations of abuse are true, wrongful allegations may be made for a variety of reasons and are not necessarily malicious. However, wrongful allegations have a devastating effect on the accused and their families. They can lose their reputations, their careers, and can lose their freedom. They may suffer severe damage to their physical and mental health and some may even take their own lives. They may become outcasts in their communities. When an allegation of child abuse is made there is always a victim, either the complainant or the accused.
