Well done Mickey. Every who has witnessed the effect of the ARC, will need to find it within themselves to come forward (confidentially and anonymously) and help make it happen here in the UK.
"The inquiry covers both England and Wales and wants to hear from anyone who was sexually abused as a child in an institutional setting such as a care home, a school or a religious, voluntary or state organisation.
They also want to hear from anyone who reported their sexual abuse as a child to a person in authority like a police officer or teacher where the report was either ignored or not properly acted on.
Duncan Forbes, who chairs the South East Wales Safeguarding Children’s Board, said: “Those who have experienced abuse may be concerned about confidentiality. They aren’t expected to give information in public and nothing will be published about them which could identify them without their permission. You can tell the Inquiry as little or as much as you want about your experiences.”
