Make perpetrators of abuse pay the costs for therapy for their victims

Make perpetrators of abuse pay the costs for therapy for their victims

Add monthly financial support payment for therapy required by their victims due to the damage to mental and emotional health

Why is this important?

Reduce costs to NHS services
Outsource to private therapists to help with the increasing toll on the NHS
May direct perpetrators to therapy for their own issues
Financial consequences for their actions
Therapy available to those on low income that need it, when they need it
Prevent further damage from the stored triggers , beliefs etc, including awareness education
Higher likelihood of low re-offending rate as a result of including this as part of the statutory penalty
