Inquiry publishes key information for mandatory reporting seminar in April

20 March 2019

The Inquiry has published key information and advice for the further seminar on mandatory reporting, taking place on April 29-30.

The seminar will consider arguments for and against the introduction of legislation which would make reporting child sexual abuse a legal requirement in England and Wales.

Taking place at the Inquiry’s hearing centre in Southwark, the seminar will also examine the practical considerations involved in introducing such a law.

The seminar will be streamed on the Inquiry website ( and is open to members of the public who wish to attend in person.

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 is available on our website here and the 11 presentations are also available to read on the mandatory reporting seminar page.
