Facilitated Listening Meetings provide clients firstly with the opportunity to explore their objectives and aspirations in meeting with the representatives of the Diocese or Congregation/Institution in which their abuse took place.
If the client so wishes, a fully trained member of the Towards Healing team will then support the survivor in coordinating a restorative justice meeting.
The member of Towards Healing assigned to the client will provide support before, during and after any meetings take place.
The client can request a meeting with a representative from the Church but also request to meet the perpetrator or other person they nominate; we can ‘invite’ whoever they want to talk with.
