Recruitment to the CSSA Survivor Reference Panel

Dear Safeguarding Coordinators, Trustee Sub Committee Chairs, Religious Leaders, Religious Safeguarding Leads

Please pass this information on to victims and survivors that may be interested in this opportunity, and through your networks if appropriate.

The Catholic Safeguarding Standards Agency (CSSA) is recruiting to a new Survivor Reference Panel as part of its strategy to engage widely with victims and survivors of church related abuse.  The panel will bring together survivor representatives from the Catholic Church in England and Wales to support and inform the work of the CSSA, by ensuring that the voice of those harmed by their contact with the Church, and in particular victims and survivors of clerical abuse, is heard and learnt from.

The closing date for receipt of expressions of interest is 5 December 2021.

Interviews will take place on 16 December 2021.

To arrange an informal discussion about the role, please contact [email protected]

Thank you
