The Truth Project is an important part of the Independent Inquiry Child Sexual Abuse. The project is an opportunity for victims and survivors of child sexual abuse to share their experience of how institutions failed to protect them. Those wishing to share their experience can do so in a confidential private session, in writing or by telephone. Any experience shared with the Project will not be questioned or judged, but rather used to shape the Inquiry recommendations for better protecting children in future.
The Truth Project wants to reach as many victims and survivors as possible to ensure they know about this opportunity to share their experience, as it may not occur again. They also know that many victims and survivors live in silence with their experience and yet are present in all walks of life. Can you help us reach out to victims and survivors who may be working in or with your organisation? If you agree that it is important to attempt to do so then we would like to work alongside you - in ways with which you are comfortable - to achieve it. This might, for example, be through your promoting our awareness-raising materials or a senior member of Inquiry staff explaining our aims to groups of your staff. We would always want to agree an approach with you that is right for your organisation.
In considering whether to work with us on this key initiative you may wish to read our attached Truth Project booklet which will hopefully answer any questions you might have. You may also wish to consider displaying one of our attached Truth Project posters at your workplace. Additionally, if you would like to meet with myself Sue James Head of Inquiry Office - Wales or a colleague to discuss this in more detail then please feel able to do so at firstname.lastname@example.org to begin a conversation.
