Inquiry to hold further seminar on mandatory reporting

18 April 2019

The Inquiry is set to hold a further seminar on mandatory reporting on April 29 and 30.

The seminar will consider the arguments for and against making the reporting of child sexual abuse a legal requirement in England and Wales.

It will be held at the Inquiry’s hearing centre at 18 Pocock Street, Southwark, London.

Participants include experts from the NHS, NSPCC, Department for Education and the Scouts, as well as charity representatives and victims and survivors.

The full agenda and participant list for the seminar can be found on the Inquiry’s website.

The first session will begin at 1.30pm on April 29, while the second session will start at 10am on April 30.

An earlier seminar on mandatory reporting took place on 27 September 2018 and considered existing obligations to report child sexual abuse in England and Wales, as well as international models of mandatory reporting.

A report of that seminar has been published on the website and the 11 presentations are also available to read on the mandatory reporting seminar page.
