Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse

On 27 November 2015 the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse (IICSA) announced that 'Children in the Care of Nottinghamshire Councils' would be one of the Inquiry's first 13 investigations into the extent to which institutions have failed to protect children from sexual abuse.

The public hearing has now been scheduled to begin on 1 October 2018 for up to three weeks. The hearing will be split into two parts with a break of one week in the week commencing 15 October 2018.

The County Council is committed to fully supporting the principles and aims of the Inquiry and will continue to cooperate fully.
