Fifty accounts of child sexual abuse and institutional failure have been published today (June 25) by the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse.

The experiences were shared with the Inquiry’s Truth Project which has heard from over 1,000 victims and survivors. Early insights show these people came from all walks of life; the youngest participant was 21 and the oldest 95.
