Communications with Leeds Diocese.

A hypocritical organisation

  • Institutional impunity
  • Conspirital silence.
  • No candour, only secrecy.
  • delays
  • evasions
  • No empathy here
  • aggression is their theme
  • Seditious actions
  • Exclusions
  • Threats

Raising an Official Complaint

  • Writing to The Leeds Diocese
  • A letter raising a formal complaint, to The Bishop of Leeds in March 2020.
  • Reply late afternoon 30th September 2020
    (over 6 months later)
  • Paints the blackest possible picture.
  • Selective use of facts, little mention of the woman's despicable behaviour
  • Drama biased adjectives used to influence the reader.
  • No mention of my Service record, totally omitted.
  • No mention of my good character, no references.

My recommendations to anyone faced with this situation.

  • Jump on this quickly.
  • Contact, in writing, all the Clergy who might be involved.
  • Ask for details.
  • There is a 12 months time limit
    on bringing misconduct action against a Church Officer.
    12 months passes very quickly.
  • Using "Safeguarding" as a weapon
  • The Clergy are easily hoodwinked.
  • Make sure you get the seeds of doubt sown very early.
  • Sadly, this is never ending
  • Over 3 years on
  • The victimisation continues
  • Always a victim
  • Never a survivor
  • The Leaders of The CofE continue to perpetrate abuse
