The Inquiry has launched a new listening project to hear from more people impacted by the Post Office Horizon scandal.   

In Your Own Words is a channel for any affected by the scandal to share their stories and how their experiences have impacted them. Experiences shared will inform a Legacy Project that the Inquiry is working with sub-postmasters to develop.
