Our main purpose shown may vary from time to time
To defend Society from old fashioned and outdated laws and practice and work with lawmakers to modernise them
That individual citizens are protected by the law
To ensure Truth, Justice, Fairness is available to everyone with the prime focus on protecting Innocents
No one loses their innocence. It is either taken away from them or given freely. When we refer to Innocents we mean Victims who have their Innocence taken away
It is important for us to maintain absolute confidentiality of any person seeking assistance.
We do not judge people seeking our advice and rely on all to be truthful.
We do not provide legal and or commercial advice. Our role being to provide information for them to make their own choice.
We recognise that there is a difference between victims and survivors. Children being abused continuously, or Domestic Violence victims, or those held captive are still victims. So too are those suffering in silence. Survivors are victims that are seeking help or coping by using information readily available to them.
Victims of Family violence, rapists or paedophiles or other similar crimes usually do not know what to do. It is common for them to remain silent but when they do decide to disclose their information they often do not receive good advice. Many receive advice or responses that fail to identify the level of risk they face or the type of expert assistance they may require, or simply try to minimise their experience.
It is every person’s right to live their life free of criminal violence and when such violence occurs it is their right to receive compassionate, professional assistance in their recovery and full redress for the crime through the criminal justice system.
It is also their right to not seek legal retribution, however although a Victim doesn’t wish to prosecute the legal system may operate independently as a crime has been committed.
We recognise and note that the main factors why Victims do not report and remain silent are:
Negative reaction from police or other professionals leading to a belief that giving more information would be a waste of time
Negative Social pressures reinforces self-blame feelings
Negative reactions that make victims doubt whether their experiences were a crime.
