Welcome to the PAFAA and SOFAP website. This site was set up in an effort to offer help and support to anyone who has been falsely accused of abuse of a sexual nature.
As a completely voluntary organisation, we are concerned primarily with the current climate that makes it possible for anyone to be accused of abuse, especially of a sexual nature, and in particular against children.
And so, in 2004, in order to better serve those falsely accused, and those who need support, PAFAA and SOFAP combined their respective strategies and resources. This has led to a more coherent effort from all concerned when offering help to the people that need it most, those who find themselves falsely accused and convicted, and in a lot of cases, incarcerated for crimes that were never committed in the first place. A fuller explanation is given by Helga (AKA “RF”), our lay “legal” advisor on our “ABOUT US” page, from the link at the top of this page.
Unfortunately, due to the huge demands on available resources, it is not always possible for us to take on new cases, but if you think you need support, please first of all join our forum by clicking on the link to the right under “Useful Links”, where even just moral support and the knowledge that you are not alone can sometimes be enough to lighten the dread that we know you currently feel.
We do not, cannot and never have charged for any of the work that we undertake or advice offered be it by telephone, email or face-to-face.
I am often asked about sentencing guidelines. These are the most up to date as from 8th February 2016
