IICSA: Nottinghamshire Councils

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

IICSA

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.

Nottingham City and Nottinghamshire County Council

We represent a number of individuals in the Inquiry who were subject to sexual abuse whilst resident at children’s homes and foster placements in Nottingham.

In 2017 the Inquiry launched its investigation into the extent of any institutional failures by Nottingham City and Nottinghamshire County Councils to protect vulnerable children in their care from sexual abuse and exploitation.

The scope of the investigation is to examine the allegations of widespread sexual abuse and exploitation of children living in residential children’s homes and foster homes whilst under the care of Nottingham City Council and Nottinghamshire County Council.

We are assisting the Inquiry in considering the experiences of the victims who we represent.

The Inquiry will then investigate how Nottingham City Council and Nottinghamshire County Council responded to allegations of child sexual abuse and seek to identify any failings, if any, on the Councils part..

If you wish to speak with us about the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse we can offer you confidential and sympathetic advice on the options available to you.
