The Survivors Trust
and four further survivor charities are petitioning the Secretary of State for Education Michael Gove to introduce law requiring schools, faith groups, sports bodies, NHS, early years settings to inform the Local Authority Designated Officer of all allegations and incidents of suspected and known abuse. Presently no such legal obligation exists, and there is no sanction on any Regulated Activity, as these institutions are termed, for failing to inform the LADO.
Rape and sexual abuse can happen to anyone regardless of their age, gender, race, religion, culture or social status.
Living with the consequences of rape and sexual abuse can be devastating. We believe that all survivors are entitled to receive the best possible response to their needs whether or not they choose to report.
