NSPCC has said Jimmy Savile’s alleged sex abuse victims have heightened sex abuse awareness in the nation

The Jimmy Savile sex abuse scandal has prompted the National Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC) to launch a campaign to remind the public that child abuse is not merely a crisis of the past. NSPCC advertisements will urge the population to report current incidents of child sexual abuse to its helpline. As per the charity, it was essential for people to report child sexual abuse to the NSPCC even if the people only had suspicions that abuse was occurring.

As per the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre (CEOP), the effect of the Jimmy Savile sex abuse scandal had resulted in a 30% increase in reports of child abuse. The CEOP spokeswoman has remarked that it had obtained 1578 reports of child abuse in November 2012, up from 1214 in November 2011. CEOP has declared that it had received increased reports of sexual grooming from the public, police and Internet service providers.

Peter Watt, the NSPCC helpline director, has proclaimed that Jimmy Savile’s alleged victims have performed a terrific public service by gallantly speaking out in public about their horrific experiences at the hands of the ex-BBC presenter. Because of the courageousness of these alleged victims of Jimmy Savile’s sex abuse, the national public is now more conscious and honest about the existence of child sexual abuse and its debilitating impact on victims.

The Metropolitan Police’s Operation Yewtree to investigate the Jimmy Savile sex abuse scandal has seen above 500 alleged victims of Jimmy Savile.

As per Peter Watt, anguish of the children being sexually abused must be ended and their violators must be punished. It is the duty of all fair-minded people to act now against child sex abuse. The alleged victims of the Jimmy Savile sex abuse scandal waited decades to be heard and assisted. Such an injustice can’t happen again, voiced the NSPCC helpline director.

The NSPCC advertisement on child sex abuse intends to instill in the minds of the people that this is an existential problem. Peter Watt assured the population that NSPCC’s qualified counsellors would thrash out the people’s concerns over child sex abuse and suggest an appropriate future action.
