Social Care Institute for Excellence (SCIE) – External Review
The Catholic Church in Paisley is issuing an extraordinary appeal during the month of June 2022 to anyone who may have been affected by any kind of abuse at the hands of clergy or church officials. The Social Care Institute for Excellence (SCIE) is conducting an external review of the Diocese of Paisley to hear from people with first-hand experience of how the Diocese has responded to reports of abuse. Anyone who may wish to report on their experience should contact SCIE directly by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone on 07921 251614. SCIE will then get in touch to arrange a time to report to the auditors in a way that suits each individual. Please visit https://rcdop.org.uk/independent-review for more information and to see the letter from SCIE Learning Together, requesting help with the independent review.
