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

If you’d like to share your experience in writing, you don’t need to make an appointment. You decide when and how you want to write about what happened to you. 

There are different ways to share your experience in writing:

  •  Fill in our booklet. We can post this to you, or you can download it and print it from here.

Write in the booklet whatever you want to share, and return it to: Freepost IICSA Independent Inquiry. You don’t need a stamp.

  • Fill in our online form - this is similar to our booklet but can be completed electronically. If you would like to use this, email us at contact@iicsa.org.uk and we will send you a link.

  • If you don’t want to fill in a form or a booklet, you can write what you want to share and post it to Freepost IICSA Independent Inquiry, or email it to contact@iicsa.org.uk This guide to sharing your experience might be helpful.

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.

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

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.
