What is the Truth Project?

The Truth Project offers victims and survivors of child sexual abuse the chance to share their experiences and be heard with respect.

It is part of the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse.

Listening to your experiences and suggestions helps us recommend changes to protect children from abuse. We encourage you to take part before the Truth Project concludes in 2021.
