Victims & survivors

The experiences of victims and survivors of child sexual abuse are at the heart of the Inquiry. Their generous contributions have been fundamental in informing the Inquiry’s work to better protect future generations of children.

Since the Inquiry was established in 2015, thousands of victims and survivors have helped shape the Inquiry’s work by sharing their experiences of child sexual abuse with the Truth Project, providing evidence during investigations, contributing to research and engaging with the Victims and Survivors Forum. 

Their views and experiences have been pivotal in building a clearer picture of the extent of child sexual abuse, its impact on victims and survivors, and what needs to change to help prevent it happening in future. Every contribution matters, and has helped to inform the Inquiry’s recommendations to government and other institutions.
