Our private Facebook user group accused.me.uk is one of the most active places where you can link with people from the UK, who have also been framed for something they say never happened. As of October 2021, we have over 2,300 members who receive our stories, help and advice every day.
Discussions in private groups on Facebook remain that way: they’re private to the people in the group. Posts you make will therefore not be visible to your other Facebook friends who aren’t in the group.
The moderators of the forum also ensure that the language used in your posts remains respectful and supportive of others going through a very distressing time. Whilst ensuring politics is kept out of it so we can focus on your situations.Members who cannot keep to these simple rules are removed.
