For clients recently placed under investigation for sexual offences there can be a mixture of shock, shame and fear, which can be shared by their family members. For clients in this situation, we offer an initial consultation, usually with seven days of a request. The consultation can be face-to-face, on Zoom video call, or by telephone. These one-hour meeting cost £60 and are aimed at:
> Helping to stabilise the client's immediate well-being
> Providing a place for the client to talk about their greatest fears and anxieties
> Providing insight into investigation, legal and social care processes and potential outcomes
> Providing initial advice on navigating investigation, and social care processes.
Confidentiality limitations are always fully explained so that clients can feel safe in speaking openly. In the consultations we are able to discuss what outcomes are possible, and how likely these outcomes may be in your case.
We would usually conclude the consultation by offering you entry to the Safer Lives Programme.
If you are not under investigation, we will discuss what other individual support might benefit you.
