Useful Research

As research into child sexual abuse grows, so does the availability of useful information, data and insight. This can come from sources like recent reports published by the Centre of Expertise on Child Sexual Abuse and the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse.

The findings of publications like these are not just useful for anyone helping survivors directly; they can also help guide commissioners in their decisions about service provision.  Here, we have created links to key organisations and publications, and we will update this page when new material is made available.

Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse

The IICSA was set up because of  serious concerns that some organisations had failed and were continuing to fail to protect children from sexual abuse. It aims to address issues that have persisted despite previous enquiries and attempts at reform.

The National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC)

The NSPCC seeks to protect children, prevent abuse and make child abuse a thing of the past.
