VictimsVoicesUK sincerely encourages victims to come forward no matter how long ago the crime was committed and report to their local police.
It is a given fact that JW elders and Bethel’s Legal Department have neither legal investigative powers nor counselling training to deal with child or adult sexual abuse victims.
Numerous historic cases have never been reported due to the JW organisation’s misapplication of the scriptural ‘two witnesses’ to a crime rule in matters of child sexual abuse.
CHILD SEXUAL ABUSE IS NOT JUST 'A SIN'
IT IS A CRIME OF THE MOST HEINOUS NATURE

We offer a confidential service. We will not disclose any information to any organisation without your prior consent. The only exception to this is if we learn that an adult or child is at imminent risk of harm. In those circumstances alone we are obliged to inform the Police.
We have training in counselling with both adults and children. We can guide you to access specialist support and legal advice.
We aim to collate the number of both reported and unreported cases of child sexual abuse within the JW organisation in the UK. Collated anonymous data will be passed to IICSA (Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse) with the aim that they will investigate the full extent of the abuse within the JW organisation in the UK.
