Archbishop of York
welcomes 'Fourth House' website
built by survivors



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, 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."
