Total failure  ( September 2019 to March 2020 )

  • Initial Failures
  • The woman declared this to be a "Safeguarding issue".
  • Jenny Leccardi declared this NOT to be a "Safeguarding issue".
  • Total IMPUNITY. The Bishop's Guidance does not allow Jenny Leccardi to make that decision.

  • Failed to gather independent information.
  • Failed to verify the woman’s story.
  • Failed to be aware of the woman’s previous behaviour.
  • Failed to communicate with the accused.
  • Advice failures
  • Failed to ensure The Archdeacon of Pontefract had true information.
  • Failed to pass on vital information
  • Allowed Peter Townley to make a libelous statement
  • The stress and defamation she started still continues.
  • The Police say:-
  • Safeguarding can not take anyone at their word no matter how much they trust you.
    In law they would be criticized for taking you at your word should something go awry at a later date.
  • Yet the attacker is believed by Jenny Leccardi.

Diocesan Safeguarding Advisors Regulations 2016

The final failure

  • Failure to resign
  • Totally disfunctional.
  • Continues to bring disrepute upon The Leeds Diocese

My recommendations to anyone faced with this situation.

  • Jump on this 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
