New bench installed in Victoria Gardens as part of a Legacy Project by the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse

The Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse (IICSA) is placing plaques on benches in locations around England and Wales, carrying messages of hope from victims and survivors of child sexual abuse. 

Last week, a bench and plaque was installed in Truro’s Victoria Gardens, with permission from Truro City Council. 

Research carried out by the IICSA has shown that victims and survivors would like a physical and accessible legacy that they can visit, and Truro City Council is proud to be able to offer this in our city. The benches are a symbol of hope for the future, and also provide a legacy for the public inquiry to ensure that victims do not feel alone. 

For further information on the Inquiry, please visit their website: www.iicsa.org.uk
