False allegations can affect anyone in society in their workplace, in their personal lives, or even completely out of the blue. They can come with entirely no warming at all, and you don’t necessarily get told all the details when you are accused, arrested or your children taken away / put on child protection (depending upon the alleged circumstances).
Each case is unique, but there are many similarities in the ways that cases are handled and processed. Our members have experienced false allegations from a wide range of perspectives and we are here to help and advise anyone who is caught up in a case.
What is going to happen?
This page will outline a general guide to the process and give you advice on what to do. As we develop the page there are a few specifics we will leave you with:
- Contact us: either by phone or by email. You can speak to us in confidence to tell us about your case, ask us questions, or just to offload what is happening. Please remember that we are not qualified lawyers and make no claim to give legal advice; hence
- Get Legal Advice NOW: if you do not have a specialist solicitor you need to engage one as quickly as possible. We have a long list of solicitors that we know are specialists and can point you to firms in your local area. We cannot emphasise enough that you must not act without legal advice and do not ever entertain an “informal” or “off the record” conversation with a police officer or social worker about you case.
It’s not happening to me, but to someone I know…
That’s no problem to us. False allegations affect families, friends, communities, workplaces…they affect everyone. If you want to find out more about how you can help the person you are supporting, we can support you in that too. Oh, and by the way…you’re an angel for being their rock – they are going to need you. By all means, get them to contact us. Our service users are protected under the Data Protection Act 1998.
