Share your experience in a supportive and comfortable place

Private sessions can take place in person or by phone. At the Truth Project session, you will meet with a trained facilitator and an assistant. They won’t challenge anything you say. All have experience of working with victims and survivors. You are in control of what you share and it doesn't matter if you don't remember everything, or choose not to share everything.

Support available before, during and after. Unless you’ve asked us not to, a support worker will be assigned to you. They are there to help you throughout the process. Find out more about the support available in the help and support section.


Private session in person or by phone

Sessions take place Tuesday to Friday, and we’ll contact you to arrange an appointment that’s convenient for you.

If you choose to share your experience in person, you can pick where and when you’d like your session to take place from the options available, across England and Wales. All locations are easily accessible by road and rail. We’ll cover travel, accommodation and reasonable out of pocket expenses. We’ll also accommodate any specific needs or disabilities. 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 services for deaf users.

If you would like to bring a friend or relative with you we can make arrangements for them too. 

If you’d like to share by phone, we will work with you to help you think about a place that is suitable for you, where you feel comfortable and can share without being disturbed.

Sharing your experience in writing

If you’d like to share your experience in writing, get in touch and we’ll let you know how you can do this.

As with a private session, you can tell us as much or as little as you want about what happened to you. It's ok if you can’t remember everything or if there is information that you don’t want to share. Some people want to focus on the way that they were let down by adults who should have better protected them.

It is important to us that you are in control of what you tell us.

Further information about available support can be found on our support page.

What you might want to share with the Truth Project

You can share as much or as little as you like with us.

You may want to think in advance about what you want to say and you can bring notes to your session. If you’ve decided to use our support service, your support worker can also help you think about how to prepare if you’d like them to.

Some participants have talked about the failings of institutions in facilitating their abuse, or how they were let down when they reported what happened to them, or failed to recognise signs of abuse. Others have spoken about the impact that the sexual abuse has had on them, both as a child and later as an adult.

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.
