Applications open to join Victims and Survivors Consultative Panel

28 October 2019

The Inquiry is inviting applications from survivors of child sexual abuse to join its Victims and Survivors Consultative Panel (VSCP).

The VSCP is a key part of the Inquiry. Its role is to provide consultative advice on all areas of work, including engagement, research, communications and future recommendations. The VSCP works to ensure that the needs and perspectives of victims and survivors are reflected in the Inquiry’s ongoing work.

The Inquiry recognises the need for the VSCP to be representative of all victims and survivors. Therefore, applications are encouraged from individuals with an understanding of the views and issues surrounding male victims and survivors as well as those from ethnic minority groups.

As a member of the VSCP, you may be required to undertake any or all of the following:

  • Advise the Inquiry on the way in which it engages with victims and survivors, including: how we reach out to victim and survivor groups and networks; how to engage people in the Victims and Survivors Forum; and how to spread the Inquiry’s messages to wider victim and survivor communities.

  • Advise the Inquiry on the way in which it communicates with the broader public, for example through reviewing Inquiry materials.

  • Share your expertise and knowledge in developing and reviewing the work of the Inquiry including the Truth Project and our research programme.

  • Attend events, both Inquiry-led and external, to present the work of the Inquiry, facilitate discussion on a range of topics and promote the Truth Project.

  • Take part in media interviews both regional and national for a range of media formats. 

  • Attend meetings with members of the Inquiry secretariat focused on particular projects and workstreams.
