NSPCC REPORT LAUNCH TODAY - ' WOULD THEY ACTUALLY HAVE BELIEVED ME?' A focus group exploration of the under-reporting of crimes by Jimmy Savile
A focus group exploration of the under-reporting of crimes by Jimmy Savile has been written by Louise Exton and Kam Thandi who work on the NSPCC Helpline. It was commissioned by Her Majesty's Inspectorate of Constabulary (HMIC) which asked NSPCC to carry out a series of focus groups with victims that had come forward. The focus groups sought to identify common themes that prevented victims reporting to the police at the time of the abuse and to explore how police can improve the management of the reporting process and subsequent interviews and contacts.
The report looks at the reasons why Savile's victims did not report the crimes at the time of the abuse, and their subsequent experiences. We are grateful to those people who contributed to this piece of work.
Please access the report here.
