There are several people we would like to thank for their incredible support and guidance during the run up to our debate:
Julian Whiting, at Nested, who has been an invaluable source of information and ideas and whose own work highlighting sexual abuse within the Church is not only courageous, but admirable.
Julian’s sister, for so graciously providing us with our beautiful flyer for the event, which she designed under some pressure and quite a lot of to-ing and fro-ing of ideas.
Anthony Priddis and David Isherwood, who gave us a tremendous amount of guidance and support, with David even insisting on helping us whilst in hospital and Anthony giving so generously of this time over the course of several days.
Our Partners, The Hindu Muslim Forum, MACSAS, Children of Abraham (Imams and Rabbis Council of the United Kingdom) and City of London Interfaith, who have provided us with encouragement, guidance and so much more.
And last but by no means least, we would like to thank Alok Sharma MP and Bob Blackman MP, who made the Committee Room in the House of Commons available to us, and without whom we would not have had such a poignant and perfect venue in which to hold our event.
