The accounts of abuse shared at IICSA’s Child Migration hearing were harrowing and we commend the bravery of those former child migrants who came forward to share their experiences at the Inquiry.
The Church wants to repeats its apology to the children and families who were affected by the programme facilitated by the Church of England Advisory Council for Empire Settlement, or “CEACES”.
Following the hearing and publication of the subsequent report the Church was asked by IICSA to respond to two particular recommendations and to publish an update to these which can be found here.
If you are affected by child migration and would like to talk to someone in the Church, please email the National Safeguarding Team at [email protected] and someone will contact you. Support is also available from the Child Migrants Trust.
