NBSCCCI Review of Safeguarding Practice in the Diocese of Down and Connor

Engaging with Survivors of Abuse



As part of the review the Diocese would wish to hear from any survivors who have not yet come forward to do so. Should anyone wish to make a new referral, contact can be made directly to the Police, Social Services or the Designated Officer(s) for the Diocese, Andy Thomson or Barbara McDermott. Contact details can be found at the end of this message.

If during the diocesan review anyone contacts the review team to make a referral, it is important to understand that the review team will liaise directly with the Statutory Authorities and the Diocese to ensure an appropriate response and the availability of counseling which will be provided by “Towards Healing”.
