Truth project

Our Truth Project offers victims and survivors of child sexual abuse the opportunity to share their experiences and be respectfully heard, and helps us to better understand child sexual abuse.

Experiences shared

The Inquiry publishes narratives of experiences shared with the Truth Project on a regular basis. These are the personal experiences of victims and survivors of child sexual abuse that they have chosen to share with the Truth Project.

Victims and survivors can share as little or as much as they want about any aspect of their experience. They can do this face to face, via video or telephone sessions or in writing.

Dashboards

We also produce quarterly Truth Project dashboards that include the experiences of those who were abused within a family, an institution or in another context.

We produce these dashboards as part of our research programme. It provides information from the Truth Project about:

  • the victims and survivors of child sexual abuse
  • the nature of the abuse that they experienced
  • where the sexual abuse took place and who the perpetrators were
  • the impacts of child sexual abuse
  • whether those victims and survivors told anyone about the abuse.

You can find some examples of our findings below and see our dashboards.
