Letter from the Archbishops of Canterbury and York

After the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse (IICSA) hearings in March 2018 involving matters in the Diocese of Chichester, the Archbishops of Canterbury and York issued a letter for all Dioceses.

The letter was sent in Holy Week and outlined the Archbishops' thoughts in the aftermath of the hearings. The Archbishops also thanked all who work hard to protect vulnerable adults and children in dioceses for their important work. Read and/or download the letter.
