Researching Reform recently wrote about a very brave group of church abuse survivors and lawyers championing their cause, who held a meeting in London to create momentum for a public enquiry to take place on child abuse within the church.
The latest development has seen this Group organise a further meeting in London which took place on Thursday 19th April and was also filmed and broadcast in part on the BBC’s evening news. The movement is being backed by prominent lawyers, high-profile individuals and MPs. Fresh cases of child abuse continue to come to light, despite the Church’s weak claim that these complaints are historical (and to that we say, the claim is no less important for that).
Please do watch the video if you have time and if you have been abused yourself by the Church, you can get in touch with the Group above either through us or on the website which is placed in the second link above.
