To be fair tackling the problem of false allegations wouldn't especially help rape victims directly. The whole "makes it harder for real victims to be beleived" is essentially bs and just a feminist tactic of trying to take attention away from the real victims of false accusations - men.

That said, genuine rape victims would benefit indirectly in many ways and to a large extent - more police and court resources, faster responses, more prison places for actual rapists due to less innocent men being locked up etc.

The main concern of the Fawcett Society appers to be the "conviction rate" (though what they actually mean is the attrition rate). There's no doubt that if you could put a stop to 50% of false rape allegations then said attrition rate is going to increase massively.
