In the first update of its kind since it launched, the nation’s Child Abuse Inquiry has announced that it will look to run 12 investigations in tandem, as part of the first phase of its work.
Those investigations include ear marked councils, religious organisations, schools, organised networks, the internet and prominent public figures accused of sexually abusing children. The Inquiry will also look at accountability and reparations for victims and survivors of child sexual abuse.
Noteworthy also, is the segment which will look at the protection of children outside the UK, and whilst it is not quite clear what this aspect of the investigation involves (the Q&A section does not tell us either), we very much hope this will include a look at the way children were illegally shipped to Australia from the UK, where they went on to be sexually abused on a mass scale.
