Bailey warned that the number of victims could run into the hundreds of thousands, and called for much more support for survivors of child abuse.
Chief Constable Simon Bailey, who heads Operation Hydrant said:
“The government has allocated millions of pounds to provide additional support, but I am not sure that is going to be enough. We are talking about hundreds of thousands of victims.”
John Brown from the NSPCC said the failure to support victims amount to a public health problem. “That is the issue. We are not helping children and adult victims to recover and there are huge costs to society, there are economic considerations and individual psychiatric costs.”
………nothing’s changed then?
