IICSA – Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse
IICSA have recently published fifty accounts of child sexual abuse and institutional failure. The experiences were shared with the Inquiry’s Truth Project and illustrate a catalogue of failures from organisations including sports clubs, boarding schools, GP surgeries and the World War Two evacuation scheme. The publication can be viewed online or downloaded from IICSA’s website: www.iicsa.org.uk/victims-and-survivors/experiences-shared.
The Truth Project and the report also featured on BBC Radio 4’s Woman’s Hour, the show also recorded a podcast which they have hosted on their website. https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b0b7d0nh
The Interim Report provides an overview of the work undertaken by the Inquiry to date and progress so far, and includes what the Inquiry Panel considers to be the key emerging themes. The report brings together themes emerging from the five public hearings IICSA have held over the past 18 months and the analysis of existing research and seminar discussions which is informative. Over 1,000 victims and survivors have now participated in the Truth Project. It includes recommendations for specific changes which will help to better protect children from sexual abuse. https://www.iicsa.org.uk/reports
