One In Four Seeks Changes To Justice System For Child Sex Abuse Survivors

One in Four says survivors of child sexual abuse are being re-traumatised when engaging with the justice system.

The advocacy group says introducing recommendations from the O'Malley report will help tackle barriers survivors face when going through the courts.
One of the recommendations of the report published last year, said those working in the justice system should be trained to deal with people who claim to be victims of sexual crime.
The group estimate that only 10 to 15 per cent of people who experienced child sexual abuse will engage with the Criminal Justice System.
