Child sex abuse inquiry to be over by 2020 as remit is scaled back Professor Jay said while she and her panel would endeavour to look closely at many institutions where youngsters were allegedly abused, it would be “impossible to do so for all of them”.

Child abuse inquiry head Alexis Jay vows to ‘fight on’ as major survivors’ group quits

Independent Newspaper 19th November 2016

The Shirley Oaks Survivors Association (Sosa), which represents at least 600 victims who lived in children’s homes in London, pulled out of participating in the inquiry – which is yet to hear any evidence – saying it had lost confidence in it.

“Having watched the IICSA unpalatable circus stumble and lurch from crisis to crisis with multiple resignations and claims of racial and sexual abuse thrown into the mix, it no longer matters whether we think the inquiry is just another stitch-up because it’s clearly a botch job that needs a drastic overhaul if it is ever to achieve its initial objectives.”
