Safeguarding at the Heart of the Church

The Independent Inquiry into Child Sex Abuse (IICSA) has launched a national campaign to raise awareness of its Truth Project, which has been set up to give victims and survivors of child sex abuse the opportunity to share their experiences and, thereby, frame the outcomes of the Inquiry.

If you wish to find out more, we encourage you to visit the Truth Project website to find out more information and more importantly how 'you can be heard'.

If you wish to discuss this with a member of the Dicoesan Safeguarding team, please email them or tel: 0191 243 3305.
