Quick Exit

All experiences, however they are shared, will help us make recommendations to improve child protection in organisations and institutions across England and Wales. If you’re ready to share your experience with the Truth Project, you can do this in the following ways:

Sharing your experience in writing

You can share your experience in writing whenever it’s right for you. You can use our booklet, or you can write to us by post or email.

Our booklet includes some questions to help you think about what you’d like to share with us. You can download and print out the booklet, or if you would like to receive a copy by post, please contact us using the contact details or call 0800 917 1000 and we will send one to you.

If you’d prefer not to use the booklet, you can write to us by post or email. You can write as little or as much as you'd like about what happened to you, or send us something you have already prepared about your experience. If you would prefer to share in this way, we have created some guidance that might help you. When you feel ready, you can email or post it to us using the contact details.

You can find out more about the support we offer on our help and support page.


Sharing your experience in a private session

A private session can take place either in person or by phone. If you are Deaf, we can offer you an in-person session facilitated by a Deaf team who will communicate in your chosen method. Find out more about this at our Services for deaf users page. If you would like to have a private session, please get in touch using the contact details below.

You don’t have to give us any details of your experience at this stage. Just let us know you’re interested in taking part and we will get back to you with more information on how to book a session.

Your privacy

There are very limited circumstances where we tell anyone your name without your consent, for example if a child is currently at risk and we need to tell the police.
