Working with Victims and Survivors

The Review will set out for victims and survivors of Peter Ball, as well as for the public, what happened and we will do this best if we have testimony from as many victims and survivors as possible. We plan to begin seeking interviews with those who have contacted us before the end of May. We make these commitments to those who were abused by Bishop Ball:

Confidentiality

We guarantee your anonymity¹ throughout our work unless

  • your identity is already in the public domain and/or
  • you explicitly confirm that you are content to be identified. 

Accuracy

We will make sure that we fully understand and reflect what you tell us.  We will make a record of any meeting with you and we guarantee that we confirm the accuracy of that record with you.

Support

We understand how difficult it will be for some survivors to come forward and help us. You are welcome to bring someone with you when you come to meet us, if you so wish. We will make sure that there are arrangements, where requested

  • to provide you with emotional support
  • to meet any travelling and accommodation costs, in accordance with the Church’s established arrangements.

New safeguarding concerns

We must refer any new safeguarding concerns to the police, and any other relevant safeguarding body.
