The Truth Project

A core part of the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse is the Truth Project which provides the opportunity for victims and survivors to tell of their experiences.

A pilot has been running in Liverpool since November and the first formal tender for the provision of support services (in the North West) has been issued. Assessment of the expectations of the provider of those support services evidences the lengths which the Inquiry is going to, to ensure support is in place for those who engage with the Inquiry. Each victim or survivor will have allocated a dedicated support worker who will support them in advance of, during and after attendance at a private session. It is hoped that the first of these private sessions will be in May 2016 and it is anticipated that 400-500 sessions will be held. Separate counselling services will be available in addition to the work of the support worker.
