The Independent Inquiry into Sexual Abuse has three prongs:
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 their offices across England or Wales to share their experience with a member of the Inquiry. 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.
If you are a victim or survivor of child sexual abuse, and would like to contribute to the Truth Project, the Truth Project has sessions in Birmingham on the following dates:
30th and 31st Jan
1st and 2nd Feb
5th to 8th Feb 2018
