False allegations can affect anyone!

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 warning, and you don’t necessarily get told the details. This can be when you are accused, arrested, or your children taken away / put on child protection.

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?

  • 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.
  • 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, workplace etc. 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.

Declaration of good faith

FASO is a refuge of the innocent and those who are supporting them.

All descriptions of the experience of suffering false allegations of abuse or similar are given on this site in good faith, based on numerous personal accounts as well as research sources.   There is indeed a diverse range of experiences which are independent of each other, but each one supports and corroborates the profile of false allegations compiled.

FASO vehemently upholds “innocent until proven guilty” and we therefore expect proof to be rational, coherent and evidence-based.

Whereas it is assumed that anyone applying to be a Member or Friend of FASO is innocent of any allegations of abuse, the executive committee reserve the right to refuse, suspend, or cancel Membership or Friendship and any other offer of support in circumstances where it is considered that the organisation’s reputation and integrity may be at risk.
