answer text <p>No case of child abuse is ‘historical’ for victims and survivors. They must live with the consequences of their abuse each and every day of their lives. The Independent Panel Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse has been set up to determine whether state and non-state institutions take, and have taken, seriously their duty of care to protect children from sexual abuse within England and Wales. Any specific allegation to the Inquiry will, where necessary, be referred to law enforcement bodies for consideration for criminal investigation. The Home Office has funded Operation Hydrant, which is the national policing response to the oversight and co-ordination of all child abuse investigations concerning persons of public prominence or those offences which have taken place in institutional settings. The day-to-day investigation into cases of child sexual abuse, including abuse that has taken place in the past, is an operational matter for the police and law enforcement.</p> more like this
