Child sexual abuse in sports [IICSA]

 Child sexual abuse in sports

Truth Project Thematic Report "Child sexual abuse in sports" presents the Inquiry’s (Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse) research findings about experiences of victims and survivors of child sexual abuse in sports and the response of institutions to such abuse. It describes the experiences of Truth Project participants sexually abused in sports contexts between the 1950s and 2010s, with the most recent cases in our sample beginning in the early 2010s. The research findings included in this report do not reflect all experiences of sexual abuse in sports contexts and are only indicative of the specific experiences of those who chose to share their experiences with the Truth Project.
