Child Sexual Abuse Inquiry Listening Events #CSAInquiry

The Independent Panel Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse has been set up to consider whether, and the extent to which, public bodies and other non-state institutions have taken seriously their duty of care to protect children from sexual abuse in England and Wales.

As part of a series of listening meetings, the Independent Panel Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse visited Manchester on Friday (December 12).
Members of the Panel and supporting staff met privately with a number of victims and survivors of child sexual abuse to listen to their views on the Inquiry.
The purpose of the meetings was:
  • To provide information about the Panel, the Inquiry terms of reference and feedback received so far
  • To seek views on how those attending, particularly victims, survivors and representative groups, would like the Panel to engage with them
  • To ask those attending what they would like the Panel to include in their considerations
The findings will be collated as part of the Inquiry’s listening and engagement programme and fed back to the full panel. A report from the first four meetings will be placed on our website.
The Panel has agreed that the experiences of victims and survivors of child sexual abuse must be placed at the heart of the Inquiry.
Determined to give a voice to the concerns and priorities of victims and survivors during its extensive work, the Panel is considering the most effective way of enabling them to engage with the Inquiry.
The Panel is also considering how personal support can be offered to victims and survivors of child sexual abuse when they interact with the Inquiry.
At the Manchester meeting – and all the meetings that have been arranged for the New Year – support for those attending was available with a separate quiet room set aside.
The next meetings to be held are set out below. Those interested in attending should contact us through the website. Travel expenses will be paid.
