In-person Truth Project sessions conclude

6 January 2021

To protect the health of victims and survivors, we are following Government lockdown instructions and can no longer offer in-person Truth Project sessions. Participants who would like to share their experience with the Truth Project can still do so by phone, video call or in writing.

The Truth Project provides a supportive and safe opportunity for survivors of child sexual abuse to share their experiences with the Inquiry, and put forward suggestions for change to keep children safe in future. 

Those who wish to take part can do so by phone, video call or in writing. Telephone and video sessions allow participants to share their experience in a place that is comfortable and convenient for them. Experiences shared by telephone, video or in writing are treated in the same way and are of the same value to the Inquiry as experiences shared in person.

All participants who choose to engage with the Truth Project will be offered a dedicated support worker to answer any questions or concerns they might have, help them to prepare before sharing an experience, and offer support for a period of time afterwards.

The Truth Project is drawing to a close this year while the Inquiry completes its investigations and research work. This is so all of the experiences shared can be used to inform the findings and recommendations in the Inquiry’s final report, due to be published in 2022.

Those who want to share via telephone or video call are asked to get in touch by 31 July 2021, while written accounts will be welcomed until mid-October 2021. More information about sharing your experience is available on the Truth Project website.
