About this Event

The Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse (IICSA) is a Statutory Inquiry established in 2015 to investigate institutional failings in protecting children from sexual abuse. One strand of IICSA is the Truth Project which was set up to offer adult survivors of CSA an opportunity to have their experiences, impacts and recommendations listened to by the Inquiry in a validating, safe environment. So far over 5,000 people have shared their experiences, making this one of the largest exercises of public participation in a UK Inquiry. The information we have accumulated from the Truth Project has far reaching implications for a range of public service sectors. The seminar will focus on providing some background information to the Inquiry and then focus in on the fields of health and social care to see what academics and practitioners can learn from listening to over 5,000 survivors of CSA.
