We take the safeguarding of children, young people, and vulnerable adults very seriously. We aim to promote a safer church within our parish.
The following document is our Parochial Council's Policy on Safeguarding and signature(s) are required when our Church or School are hired:
This site has been published by two members of the Survivor Reference Group who are Survivors of Church of England based abuse. Its purpose is to provide helpful information for fellow Church abused survivors in various aspects of understanding or interaction with the Church and/or its representatives (legal, insurance, etc.).
We offer this resource not only for survivors, but also to the Church, as a significant body of narrative wisdom and a supplement to official CofE training.
The links on this website reveal much tenacity in the face of institutional intransigence and re-abuse. They also represent a tip of the iceberg. If we included every case, every review, and every article – the website would have a thousand links. We have tried to choose carefully the themes we hope survivors of Church of England abuse and other churches may find useful.
Stronger informed – Stronger together
