My initial assumptions. (Later proved to be my errors)

  • I let this pass by.
  • I assume this will just blow over and away.
  • I thought it was just a moan.
  • But, being in writing, to a member of The Clergy,
    they are compelled to take it seriously.

My recommendations to anyone faced with this situation.

  • Jump on this quickly.
  • Contact, in writing, all the Clergy who might be involved.
  • Ask for details.
  • There is a 12 months time limit
    on bringing misconduct action against a Church Officer.
    12 months passes very quickly.
  • Using "Safeguarding" as a weapon
  • The Clergy are easily hoodwinked.
  • Make sure you get the seeds of doubt sown very early.
  • Sadly, this is never ending
  • Over 3 years on
  • The victimisation continues
  • Always a victim
  • Never a survivor
  • The Leaders of The CofE continue to perpetrate abuse
