Support for Survivors

Our Safeguarding Office is a safe point of contact for survivors and victims of abuse within the context of Ampleforth Abbey.

We recognise that speaking out about abuse can be very difficult and distressing and you may not have felt able to tell anyone before. We are here to support you to share your experiences.

You can contact us:

  • By phone – You can call 01439 766099 and ask to speak to one of our Safeguarding Officers
  • By email – You can email
  • By post – Safeguarding Office, Ampleforth Abbey Trust, Ampleforth, York YO62 4EN
  • In person – Arrangements can be made to meet you in person or by a video call if you feel that would be helpful.
