Minister and Clergy Sexual Abuse Survivors

MACSAS supports women and men who have been sexually abused, as children
or adults, by ministers, clergy or others under the guise of the Church.

We support both Survivors who have remained within their Christian communities
and those who have left

This website offers many useful resources.
We also offer a telephone and email helpline for victims and survivors of
Minister and Clergy sexual abuse – and for relatives of victims and survivors.

The Helpline is currently open on Saturdays from 9.00am - 11.00am
and Wednesdays 7.00 pm - 9.30 pm.

We are happy to help as far as we are able.

Letter to The Home Secretary

from The Survivors Alliance - 29th January 2015

We are very aware that there is lots of media coverage about abuse at the moment as the
home office national inquiry is getting under way.

This will be very difficult for anyone who has been abused in any context. If you are at all affected by this, please do contact us or call our helpline.

MACSAS is also taking an active part in working with the home office to shape the
inquiry into uncovering the abuse within the churches whilst supporting and getting
justice for abuse survivors. As such we have met with the home secretary and will continue
to do so to ensure support for survivors is paramount throughout the whole process.
We will update you on this as we proceed.

MACSAS exists to support survivors of abuse and to be a listening and understanding ear. Please stay safe and get in touch if we can help.

On Friday 11th July MACSAS held a fringe meeting at the
General Synod of the Church of England.
The meeting was attended by the Archbishops of
Canterbury and York as well as many other senior Bishops
and many other members of Synod
