IICSA: Accountability and Reparations

We represent a number of individuals who are victims of child sexual abuse in the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse.


The Inquiry has been set up to examine the allegations of child sexual abuse and the extent to which institutions in England and Wales have taken seriously their responsibility to protect children.
