The All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) was created in November 2018 by Sarah Champion MP and The Survivors Trust, and contains members from across the Commons and Lords. The APPG works to highlight the needs of adult survivors of child sexual abuse across the country, and to give a voice to their concerns in Parliament. 

As its first inquiry, the APPG has explored survivors’ experience of accessing support services and the criminal justice system.

The findings were gathered in four ways:

  • Survivor evidence session in Parliament

  • Sector professional evidence session in Parliament

  • Online survey of survivors with 365 respondents

  • Written evidence submitted to the APPG

This report will be the first of three to be published through the spring and summer of 2019 that presents the findings from the APPG’s inquiry. Upcoming reports will cover: i) survivors’ experience of police and the Crown Prosecution Service; ii) the court process, after court care and compensation.
