Motion text

That this House notes that 1 to 7 February 2016 is the inaugural Sexual Abuse and Sexual Violence Awareness Week, which aims to ensure that, throughout the UK, a public discussion can be held about sexual abuse and violence; recognises that children, women and men can all be victims of sexual abuse and sexual violence; further recognises that approximately 85,000 women and 12,000 men are raped in England and Wales every year, whilst over half a million children are abused throughout the UK per year; highlights the #ItsNotOk campaign on social media, which seeks to address how such types of abuse should not be tolerated in society; asks for those who are victims of sexual abuse and violence to seek help so that they do not have to suffer alone; commends the work done by organisations like NSPCC, Victim Support, Women's Aid, among many others, which offer vital support to those who have been victims of sexual abuse and violence; and calls on the Government to work with other devolved administrations to tackle sexual violence on a UK-wide scale.
