Safe Spaces

Many of you will be aware that over the past years there has been a public investigation and review of safeguarding policy and practice (including where it has failed in its duty to protect and care for the victims) in a number of public institutions, including the Church of England and Catholic church. Part of the response to the findings of the enquiry is the establishment of Safe Spaces.

Safe Spaces is a free and independent support service, providing a confidential, personal and safe space for anyone who has been abused through their relationship with either the Church of England or the Catholic Church of England and Wales.
