Who are we? 

Act on IICSA is a campaign group comprised of members of the IICSA Victims and Survivors Consultative Panel (VSCP), and representatives from The Survivors Trust and their member agencies. We are working together to raise awareness of the recommendations outlined by the Independent Inquiry into Childhood Sexual Abuse (IICSA)

What's happening?

Friday 20th October will mark one year since the publication of the final IICSA report and in this time not one of the 20 recommendations has been implemented in full. #ActOnIICSA is calling on your support to raise awareness of what we must do to prevent child sexual abuse.

How can you get involved?

1) Visit and take a photo of your local IICSA legacy bench.

We would like you to upload your images to social media using the hashtag #ActOnIICSA. Whether you choose to be in the photo or not, you could simply capture an image of the bench and plaque. These images will serve as a reminder and expression of support for everyone who has experienced child sexual abuse. You can find the benches' locations here - https://www.iicsa.org.uk/our-legacy.html#find-a-bench We would love to get the message #ActOnIICSA shared across social media to remind people that the findings of the inquiry cannot be ignored, and our government needs to take action to better protect children from sexual abuse.

2) Write a letter to your local MP urging them to support #ActOnIICSA and the crucial changes we need to protect children from sexual abuse. You can find the email address for the MP in your area here >
