The Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse (IICSA) Panel was set up on 2015 following revelations of the Jimmy Savile sexual abuse scandal. The aim of the panel is to
gather evidence on historical, institutional child abuse in Britain including those whose reporting of abuse to someone in authority was ignored.
IICSA Panel member Dru Sharpling is featured in an article in the Guardian which includes a film of the Victim and Survivor Consultative Panel. Within the article Dru encourages victims and survivors to come forward and take part in the Truth Project.
“The first of hundreds of people are to begin giving testimony to a public inquiry into child sexual abuse, in an unprecedented national “truth-telling” project designed to catalogue decades of suffering.
More than 2,000 people have contacted the Goddard inquiry to say they have suffered abuse, and 600 have consented to take part in the truth project.”
