The Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse (IICSA) has been set up to investigate institutional failings to protect children in England and Wales from child sexual abuse.
You can find our more about IICSA by visiting their website: www.iicsa.org.uk
The Inquiry is calling for individuals who wish to share their experiences to contribute through the Truth Project. They want to hear from:
- anyone who was sexually abused as a child in an institutional setting like a care home, a school, a hospital or a religious, voluntary or state organisation;
- anyone who first came into contact with their abuser in an institutional setting;
- anyone who was sexually abused as a child and reported their sexual abuse to a person in authority for example a police officer, a social worker or a teacher where the report was either ignored or not acted on properly;
We believe this is a unique opportunity for people who have suffered abuse to tell their story and want to make sure that people are aware of the Inquiry and how they can become involved should they wish to do so.
If you would like to become involved in this opportunity, we would advise you to contact the Truth Project. On the website there is an online form which you will find at www.iicsa.org.ik/share-your-experience
