Jessie's Story - Escaping abuse and finding hope
Jessie was young, alone and needed support and advice to gain safety and confidence
The Truth Project has relaunched in-person sessions for Deaf victims and survivors.
Deaf people can still choose to share their experience via video call or in writing if they prefer.
“Getting a better picture of the past will help build a safer place for children now and in the future.”
As part of the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse, The Truth Project will help the panel recommend changes to better protect children in the future.
If you are deaf or hard of hearing, the Truth Project can offer a face-to-face session with a team who will communicate with you in the way you choose, for example in BSL, lip-speaking and SSE. Most of the team are Deaf and we can offer a choice of male and female team members. You can also choose to have a session with a hearing team through interpretation.
SignHealth can provide information and support for anybody considering participating via WhatsApp, text message, video call or email.
Participants can then choose to share their experiences in writing or attend a private session at any of the Inquiry’s offices across the country. All transport costs are met and the process is entirely free; you are also welcome to bring hearing dogs or support animals.
Or find out more about the service from the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse website.
You can help us reach more people who need therapy in their own language. Please consider giving to SignHealth today.
