Launch of survivor survey to inform Church of England’s national redress scheme


The National Redress Scheme survivor survey has been put on hold following an issue raised with the National Safeguarding Team, which is now being looked into.

We are very sorry about any distress this may cause.  However, it is imperative the National Safeguarding Team look into concerns once they have been raised.  

We are planning to relaunch the survey with extended timescales as soon as practicably possible .

Once again thank you for your patience.

We continue to develop the Redress Scheme and are committed to consulting survivors to help us develop a comprehensive, compassionate and safe Scheme.


The Church of England’s Redress Scheme is not yet open for applications. There will be further updates during 2023.

The survey is open from 14 March 18 April 2023.
