Voiceless Victim

A survivor of clergy child sexual abuse speaks out for those who can't speak for themselves

For survivors and their families

Welcome.

I’m no expert, but I do have personal experience. I may be further down the path to recovery than you or your loved one. I am happy to share what I have learned so far and will try to make your journey a little smoother.

If I can be of help to other survivors, or those who care for them, please don’t hesitate to ask. I’d love to hear from you if you need someone to speak to who has been through a similar experience. And if I know of organisations that could help, I’ll give you their contact details.

I’ll try to include some information you may want to consider. But remember, nobody but the survivor knows what is best for them. When making decisions, listen to your instincts, they rarely lead you astray. If you can’t decide, give it more time. Supporters can guide, offer advice, listen and be there when things get tough. By all means lean on them, but you’ve got to do what feels right to you.

Hopefully the resources will grow over time. Let me know if there’s something particular you need.

To speak out or not

      Hi Maria,

      I am so sorry to hear of your suffering, and congratulate you on your bravery in speaking out. You are certainly not alone, and many survivors are very happy to offer a helping hand to others.

      Are you interested in web resources and information or do you want to find a local group that offers face to face services, advice and perhaps self-help meetings? What country do you live in?

      You are welcome to email me privately on voicelessvictim@gmail.com to discuss further.

      Best wishes for your journey towards recovery,

      Voiceless Victim
