With such a dramatic increase in recorded sex crimes, there has never been a greater need for therapeutic help for victims
The number of child sex offences reported to police throughout the UK rose to a record 45,456 last year – 124 a day - according to figures we've obtained.
Of the total number of crimes reported, 41,457 were recorded in England and Wales. Crimes included rape, grooming and sexual assault. This was an increase of a third on 2013/14, when 31,238 sex offences were reported.
These latest statistics from a Freedom of Information request to the 45 forces in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland reveal there were nearly 4 female abuse cases (32,675) to every male (8,387).
