A diocese is first and foremost a group of people who have a strong sense of being called together by Jesus Christ, the Son of God. The most important things about us provide some answers to a simple question: why bother?
A special helpline has been set up for those who have been affected either directly or indirectly by recent publicity. The helpline will be staffed by the NSPCC and is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Calls will be handled sensitively and confidentially. Where appropriate, callers will be referred to specially trained police officers and, if required, a range of local counselling services, who are ready to offer expert support to those who come forward.
