Councillor Nicola Lowery of Telford and Wrekin Council gives the first response to Voicing CSA and the impact that the day has had on her and other councillors present and understands the need foR Telford and Wrekin Council to get the Inquiry right for survivors of Child Sexual Exploitation AND Abuse. Voicing CSA reiterates that the need for the chamber to elect an Independent Chair is imperative. This is what was voted for and this is what should be done without delay and then the Council should step away from their Indfependent Inquiry and give the Chair the authority and power to do the job which will include setting their own terms of reference and to involve CSA and CSE survivors in the process much like the Victims and Survivors Consultative Panel (VSCP) of the Independent Inquiry into Childhood Sexual Abuse (IICSA). Telford has the opportunity to take its shame and become a leading light and a path for others to follow and Voicing CSA supports that model of change that can be a blueprint for the future. Ask not what the future can do for your past but ask what your past can do for the future.
