The Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse (IICSA) have announced a number of Victims and Survivors Forum Events for 2020.

These exclusive events are open to all members of the Inquiry’s Victims and Survivors Forum. Anyone who has experienced child sexual abuse can join the Forum

All Forum members will have an opportunity to participate in events which take place across England and Wales. The first face-to-face events of 2020 will be held in March and will seek Forum members' views on Redress schemes.

Redress schemes are a way in which institutions seek to acknowledge the wrong done to victims and survivors of child sexual abuse. They can have a range of features including apologies, financial compensation, counselling and other types of support. You don't need to have sought redress or have been successful in seeking redress in order to take part in our events. We’d like to hear the experiences and thoughts of all victims and survivors.

Hearing from Forum members will help the Inquiry’s understanding of redress and the impact this may have had on them. We will also share any comments and suggestions with the Chair and Panel to help them make recommendations in their final report..

The Forum team will be holding 9 events in the following locations:

  • Birmingham
  • London
  • Cardiff
  • Newcastle
  • Brighton
  • Liverpool
  • Manchester
  • Exeter

How can you attend?

All you need to do is register to join the Victims and Survivors Forum. You’ll then receive an invitation to the Redress events with more information.
