A new factsheet has been added to the website, providing clarification on when the Inquiry may share an applicant's name with the organisation or person named as an abuser or their legal representatives.
The Inquiry must be fair to everyone involved with the Inquiry. This is a legal requirement. Sometimes the need for fairness will mean that the Inquiry must share the applicant’s name with the organisation or person named as an abuser. Not every organisation or person named as an abuser will be told the name of the applicant. This will only happen when the Inquiry must do so to be fair.
You can read more about this in the new factsheet. A link to the factsheet is at the bottom of this page.
