Archbishop of York welcomes 'fourth House' website built by survivors group


A NEW website has been created by two
survivors of clerical abuse to support other
survivors and inform Church of England bishops,
dioceses, and the National Safeguarding Team.

The website, houseofsurvivors.org, which went
live last Friday, collates guides, books,
newspaper articles, documentaries, survivor
initiatives, papers, and reviews.

The name alludes to the General Synod's
Houses of Bishops, Clergy, and Laity.
The website states: "A fourth House exists, long
unrecognised, which has done more to drive
necessary change in the Church's structures
and cultures."
