Corroboration debate - please lobby your MSP

Corroboration debate - please lobby your MSP

If you are passionate about making real change that could benefit survivors of sexual violence, please join Rape Crisis Scotland in our appeal to MSPs to support the proposal to remove the current requirement for corroboration in Scotland.

The Stage 1 debate on this issue will take place next Thursday (27th February) in the afternoon. By contacting your MSP in advance of the debate and asking him to represent your views, and the interests of survivors, you will be taking a valuable step towards helping survivors obtain the access justice to which many are currently denied.

You can find more information on this issue here and here.

Next Tuesday (25th February) Rape Crisis Scotland will publish a very detailed briefing responding to many of the key questions which have arisen in the course of the debate around this issue.

It's important that MSPs receive as many individual responses as possible, and if you're writing that you highlight why you think this issue is important and why it matters to you. You can also download a template letter for guidance here, and you can find out who your MSP is and how to contact her/him here.
