The Channel Island deaneries (Guernsey and Jersey) are participating in the Church of England's review of all past safeguarding cases.
A letter from the Dean of Guernsey, the Very Reverend Tim Barker, sent on 30 April 2021 to Guernsey's Anglican churches, can be found here.
In his letter, the Dean writes,
'I encourage anyone with any information regarding church-related abuse to be part of this process. No matter when an incident took place or whether it has been previously reported, you can make direct contact with the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor, Jem Carter, by emailing [email protected]
'I recognise that abuse has a life-long impact on victims and that some people may not yet feel safe or able to speak to the Church directly. As a result, a dedicated telephone helpline has been set up: 0800 80 20 20. This is run independently from the Church by the NSPCC. It can be used to access support, but also to provide information and raise concerns about abuse within the Church of England.
'Alternative independent support can also be found at SafeSpaces, a dedicated scheme set up to assist those subject to abuse within faith settings. They have recently extended their remit to incorporate the Channel Islands. The address is https://www.safespacesenglandandwales.org.uk/'
