    Minister and Clergy sexual abuse – and for relatives of victims and survivors.

    Important Information for Anyone Bringing an Abuse Claim Against
    the Anglican Church
    A new set of Guiding Princlples have been put in place by the Ecclesiastical
    Insurance Group (EIG) laying out how claimants should be treated when making
    claims against the Anglican Church for the consequences of abuse.
    EIG also insure other denominations including the Catholic and Methodist Curches
    so it is worth reading the Guiding Principles even if you are trying to claim against
    other churches and try to hold EIG to these standards.

    We would like to thank Julie McFarlaine and David Greenwood for their hard work
    in developing these and getting them implemented.
