Inquiry Truth Project to visit Telford

26 March 2018

The Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse will be taking the Truth Project to Telford in the next few months to hear from victims and survivors in the area.

The Truth Project, which is a vital part of the Inquiry’s work, gives victims and survivors of child sexual abuse the opportunity to talk in confidence with a facilitator. There are no legal consequences to attending a Truth Project session. Participants are not cross-examined, questioned or challenged.

Those who participate in the Truth Project can give as much or as little detail about their experiences as they want and they are also able to make recommendations for change.

The Inquiry is examining the extent to which institutions and organisations have failed to protect children in England and Wales from sexual abuse.

Alexis Jay, Chair of the Inquiry, said:

“It’s vital that everyone who wants to participate in the Truth Project has the opportunity to do so.  I would encourage victims and survivors of child sexual abuse in Telford to get in touch with us. We can promise you that you will be heard, recognised and respected.

“Child sexual abuse can take many different forms and we want to hear from as many victims and survivors as possible.  We can offer support before, during and after your confidential Truth Project session and you can also make recommendations for change that will feed into the Inquiry’s recommendations.”
