Inquiry updates position on Telford

28 March 2018

The Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse has today issued a statement in response to the request for reports and information from Telford and Wrekin Council.

Secretary to the Inquiry, John O’Brien said:

"We have reviewed the reports and other papers sent to us by Telford and Wrekin Council. They show that the Council is taking steps to address child sexual exploitation. In our investigation into child sexual exploitation by organised networks, we are currently looking at documents gathered from institutions within a number of different local authority areas.

“We will consider whether we need further information from Telford and Wrekin Council as we plan for the next phase of this investigation."

The Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse will be taking the Truth Project to Telford in May and June this year 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 to us in confidence. There are no legal consequences to attending a Truth Project session. Participants are not cross-examined, questioned or challenged.  To find out more call our Inquiry Information Line on : 0800 9171000 or visit
