The Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse (IICSA) concluded that over a period of decades, children in England and Wales were let down by State and non-State institutions and subjected to the most horrific sexual abuse by people they should have been able to trust.
On Friday 20 October 2022, the final IICSA report outlined 20 recommendations to help protect children from sexual abuse, however, 12 months later, not one of these recommendations has been adopted in full.
Survive is using this one-year milestone to bring attention back to what needs to happen to stop current and future generations of children being subjected to sexual harm and what needs to happen to support adult survivors.
We have written to local MPs, including the Prime Minister, and asked that, as a starting point, the Government set up a Child Protection Agency and appoint a cabinet level minister for children.
