Survivors Alliance Initiative (incl TST) – Response to CSA Inquiry (IICSA)

Statement of Purpose

The Survivors Trust and MACSAS (Minister and Clergy Sexual Abuse Survivors) have collaborated to establish the Survivors’ Alliance, which has brought together a wide range of survivor groups, supporting professionals, expert advisers and individual survivors.

The five aims of the Survivors’ Alliance are:

  • To strive to represent survivors nationwide in engaging with the CSA Inquiry (IICSA)
  • To co-ordinate support for survivors nationwide engaging with the CSA Inquiry (IICSA)
  • To communicate with different survivor groups nationwide in relation to the CSA Inquiry (IICSA)
  • To be a consistent point of contact for the CSA Inquiry (now IICSA) and survivor groups
  • To educate and inform government and relevant people on the effects and dynamics of abuse

The Survivors’ Alliance fully supports a statutory national inquiry which has the necessary powers to investigate cover ups, expose the systematic abuse of children in institutions, bring offenders to justice and to make sure we have effective safeguarding and child protection for future generations of children.


  • the CSA Inquiry into Institutional Failings in relation to Child Sexual Abuse (CSA) was named the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse [IICSA] on 9 July 2015

    I am trying to contact the Survivor’s Alliance regarding the institutional sexual abuse of children being covered up by our present (and past) governments, by those paedophiles who were in positions of political power and their counterparts.. I am hoping that this site is, indeed, the correct Survivor’s Alliance?
    As a victim of childhood sexual abuse myself, I wish to express my support to everyone who has suffered such abuse on all it’s complex and life-changing levels. I didn’t disclose my own abuse until I was 40 years old. I now battle daily with cPTSD and other problems which, I believe, stem from my secret childhood experiences.
    I am so very upset, disappointed. disgusted and empathetic about the horrendous defamation of victims highlighted on the ITN News today. This has prompted me to contact the Survivor’s Alliance in order to share my support and understanding to those affected in such a dreadful way … as if you all haven’t already suffered enough since the abuse occurred all those years ago.
    I would be grateful to become a member of the Survivor’s Alliance as a recovering victim of childhood sexual abuse.
    Thank you for taking the time to read this.
    Yours sincerely and with total empathy,

      Here is the link to the Children’s Commissioner’s Survey: The Children’s Commissioner hopes that by completing the survey, your contribution to the Inquiry will help prevent abuse and protect children in the future.
