Child sexual abuse survivors encouraged to register for Truth Project phone and video sessions before 31 July

19 July 2021

Victims and survivors of child sexual abuse who would like to share their experience with the Truth Project via phone or video call are encouraged to register before 31 July 2021, when applications close. Written accounts will be welcomed until the end of October 2021.

Part of the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse, the Truth Project provides a safe and supportive opportunity for survivors to share their accounts and put forward suggestions for change. It will conclude in October 2021 so the accounts shared can inform the findings and recommendations in the Inquiry’s Final Report, due to be published next year. To date, over 5,600 victims and survivors have come forward.

Those who take part will be offered a dedicated support worker to answer any questions or concerns they might have, help them to prepare before sharing an experience, and offer support for a period of time afterwards. Additional support options have been developed to ensure that those who identify as neurodiverse or Deaf feel comfortable to engage and access support from us. This includes the option of video support calls.

More information about sharing your experience is available on the Truth Project website.
