Information about talking to the Inquiry about your experiences
You can tell the Inquiry about your experiences of abuse. Talking to us will help us build a picture about what happened to children in care in Scotland in the past. It doesn’t matter if someone you name as an abuser has died or if you reported the abuse in the past.
It may be difficult and very emotional for you to tell us about your experiences. We have a witness support team who help anyone giving evidence to the Inquiry. The team is here to help and support you. We want you to feel safe when you speak to us.
As part of the process of giving evidence, you might want to talk to someone who is giving you support at present or has supported you in the past. They may also be able to help you through the process of speaking to us.
We also wish to hear from anyone who has witnessed abuse of children in care in Scotland.
By talking to us you will help us make recommendations to protect children in Scotland better in the future.
