The Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse was set up because of serious concerns that some organisations had failed and were continuing to fail to protect children from sexual abuse. Our remit is huge, but as a statutory inquiry we have unique authority to address issues that have persisted despite previous inquiries and attempts at reform.
The Truth Project
The Truth Project allows victims and survivors of child sexual abuse to share their experiences with the Inquiry. Those who wish to take part can attend a private session at one of our offices across England or Wales to share their experience with a member of the Inquiry, in a private phone session or in writing. And in November we will be bringing the Truth Project to Cornwall, providing the opportunity for victims and survivors to share their experience of child abuse in a private session locally. Their accounts are not tested, challenged, or contradicted.
The information supplied is anonymised and will be considered by the Chair and Panel members when reaching their conclusions and making recommendations for the future. As part of the Truth Project, victims and survivors will be given an opportunity to write a message to be published together with the Inquiry’s annual reports.
