2How you’d like to tell us

Getting in touch

When you're ready to share your experience with the Truth Project, you can contact us online or by phone, email or post.

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 at our Services for deaf users page.

This doesn’t commit you to anything and you can leave the process at any time.

We will reply to everyone who contacts us as soon as possible.

Your privacy is important to us

We understand you might be concerned about your privacy and what will happen to the information you give us.

You don’t have to give us any identifying information if you don’t want to. All we need to know is what name you would like us to call you and how we can contact you.

Your personal information is confidential. The only exception to this would be if the Inquiry needs to pass information to the relevant authorities because of current child protection issues or because someone is at risk of serious harm. Your personal and sensitive information is saved on secure systems and only shared with those who need to see it. We also have a legal ruling in force (called a Restriction Order), which prevents anyone from making public the identity of people who’ve shared their experience with the Inquiry without their permission. 

We might receive a request to disclose the information we hold if you’re involved in criminal proceedings relating to what you share with us. We’ll only pass this information on if we are ordered by a court to do so.

All personal information provided by victims and survivors of child sexual abuse held by the Inquiry will be deleted when the Inquiry closes. Anonymised data or accounts will be preserved.

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.
