People in Cornwall who are survivors of childhood sexual abuse are being given the opportunity to contribute to the ongoing national inquiry chaired by Professor Alexis Jay.

The Truth Project is a part of the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse and is coming to Cornwall during November 2018.

“If you are a victim and a survivor of child sexual abuse, the project is an opportunity to share your experience of how institutions failed to protect you,” said a spokesperson.

“The project was designed in discussion with victims and survivors so it will put your needs first. Any experience that is shared will not be questioned or judged, but will be used to shape the inquiry’s recommendations.”

Getting in touch to share your experience with the Truth Project is likely to be a big decision, and could be difficult and distressing. The project is therefore offering support to people before, during and after their session.

If you feel you would like to contribute and share your experience, you can do it in one of the following ways:
