New research project into BAME communities

25 June 2019

The Inquiry is launching a research project into child sexual abuse in black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) communities.

The aim of the research is is to gain a stronger understanding of how child sexual abuse affects different communities across England and Wales.

The research project will examine what barriers victims and survivors in BAME communities face when attempting to disclose and report child sexual abuse, as well as their interactions with institutions such as the police and schools. It will also look at the support available to them.

Fieldwork is due to take place this autumn, including focus groups with members of different communities. A report will then be published in autumn 2020.
