The Inquiry is working together with the Race Equality Foundation to carry out research into the views and experiences of child sexual abuse in ethnic minority communities.
The Race Equality Foundation will conduct focus groups with members of ethnic minorities, including Caribbean, Asian and African communities, as well as some one-to-one interviews.
The project wants to increase understanding of how child sexual abuse affects different communities in England and Wales.
It will scrutinize barriers to disclosure in these communities, the nature of support and individuals’ views on interactions with institutions including councils, schools and the police.
