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. The Inquiry was set up because of serious concerns that some organisations have failed to protect children from sexual abuse.

Over 4,000 people have already come forward to the Truth Project. 

Listening to your experiences and suggestions helps us recommend changes to protect children from abuse, now and in the future.

You can share your experience in writing, in person or by phone. See our video or contact us to find out more. This may help you decide if you are ready to share your experience, and it does not commit you to anything.

If you have a disability or need we will do our best to support you. If you are deaf or hard of hearing and would like help communicating with us, please contact our service partners SignHealth. You can also contact us directly. More information on sessions by video is available here as well as a short BSL film about the Truth Project (this film was made by and for Deaf people).
