Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse (IICSA) and the Church of England

A Parish Q&A Produced by the Church of England

Background

IICSA (Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse) was set up in 2015 because of serious concerns that some organisations in England and Wales had failed and were continuing to fail to protect children.

Being independent means the Inquiry is not part of government and being statutory means it has the power to compel witnesses to give evidence. It will make practical recommendations to ensure better protection for children in the future.
