About the Truth Project

The Truth Project was set up for victims and survivors of child sexual abuse to share their experiences in a supportive and confidential setting.

It’s part of the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse (IICSA) which was set up in 2015 to investigate organisations and institutions that have failed to protect children from sexual abuse. We need to understand the past to help protect children now and in the future.

By sharing their experiences, victims and survivors make an important contribution to the work of the Inquiry and their experiences will feed into and influence our findings and recommendations.


“I was very well treated at the centre. The staff were friendly and sympathetic. The allocated support worker was excellent and extremely helpful. I felt listened to and heard.”

What's involved

You might have felt let down by organisations or institutions in the past, but there is no better time to be heard.

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.
