The Broken Rites team of researchers and advocates donate their time and expertise to assist victims of church-related sexual abuse. Our running costs (such as internet connection, mobile and landline phone accounts, and going to court cases) are a constant burden.
The Broken Rites website is a valuable resource for victims, journalists, police, counsellors, and public authorities (such as Australia's national child-abuse Royal Commission). Broken Rites is frequently contacted by journalists from newspapers, television and radio.
Donations enable us to:
maintain our website at a high professional level;
maintain phone contact with victims;
liaise with police, courts, and solicitors on behalf of victims; and
offer advice to victims about options for obtaining justice.
For further information contact Broken Rites.

Survivors who have received a compensation payment from the church authorities might like to make a small donation to Broken Rites to help other victims looking for support and advice.
