Safe Spaces is a free and independent support service for anyone who who has experienced
abuse in relation to the Church of England, the Catholic Church of England and or Wales.
This could be abuse by someone who holds any role at the church or linked to participating
in a church-led activity or group.
Although the churches have funded the service, it is run independently by the charity Victim
Support, who are one of the leading charities providing specialist support to survivors of
abuse in England and Wales.
If you have been affected, however long ago, Safe Spaces can provide you with support. You
do not have to have told the police or the church authorities, and you do not have to still be
involved in the church. Your information will not be shared without your consent unless
someone else is in immediate danger.
