The Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse

Investigating the extent to which institutions have failed to protect children from sexual abuse

This Inquiry will investigate whether public bodies and other non-state institutions in England and Wales have taken seriously their responsibility to protect children from sexual abuse, and make meaningful recommendations for change in the future. In December 2016 the Chair of the Inquiry, Professor Alexis Jay OBE, published the results of her internal review into the Inquiry's ways of working. The report sets out how the Inquiry will carry out its work as swiftly and effectively as possible. The review sharpens the focus of the Inquiry and lays out a detailed schedule of work for 2017.
