Howe & Co, are very pleased to announce that Professor Alexis Jay, Chair of the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse, today granted three further applications for Core Participant status for clients of Howe & Co. David Enright (Partner and head of Howe & Co’s Inquiry team) said:
“Our team puts a great deal of work into assisting vulnerable victims and survivors to have a meaningful role in this important public Inquiry. I am very pleased that we continue to win recognition for our clients in the IICSA”
Howe & Co are currently encouraging persons who were or who are affected by issues of on line grooming to come forward so that we can assist them in relation to the IICSA’s newly announced Internet Investigation.
The dead line for core participant applications for this vitally important investigation is the 28 July. As such we would encourage any persons affected (directly or indirectly) by child abuse which was facilitated through the internet or otherwise to contact us as soon as possible.
David Enright, Head of Howe+Co IICSA team, lead a large delegation of core participant victims and survivors to the public inquiry's seminar on the fourth and fifth of July this week.
David Enright said "effective and meaningful participation of victims of survivors is vital for public confidence in this important public enquiry. That has been and will remain our central focus in our work in this child sexual abuse.”
Hard copies of the research papers were available at the seminar, and the research papers are very interesting, dealing as they do with the wide range of impacts that child sexual abuse has on victims and survivors across so many areas of their lives.
