Clergy Abuse Victims Education And Support

I am happy to be able to put my knowledge and skills at the disposal of any clergy abuse victim who is seeking an equitable response from the church. To this end, I will work by phone, fax, email and/or in person as an adviser to victims and as an educator. I do not seek any payment for this service - only covering of expenses. If you would like my assistance, please contact me as follows:

post: Clare Pascoe, CAVEAS, PO Box U181, University of New England, NSW 2351
telephone: 02-5713 0122 Mobile:0410 435 267 (Mobile will always reach me; other people may answer the landline.)



SoarOz - Email support group

If you are a victim of abuse in a religious context, you may wish to have email contact with other victims in an anonymous support group.  SoarOz (Survivors Of Abuse in Religion, Australia) provides that option.  For more information, see here.



Are you looking for a guest speaker?

I am available for all kinds of speaking engagements. I am happy to tailor my presentation to the kind of group you have. Everything from short speeches, through lectures, to workshops of varying lengths can be arranged. Fees depend on the length and type of presentation, but are extremely flexible. No matter how small your group you need not feel that the price would be out of your reach. Just email me and we can come to an arrangement.
