Katholizismus: Riesige Welle von täglich 300 Missbrauchshilfegesuchen – irish times

Huge surge reported in calls to helplines

VICTIM SUPPORT: Helplines are dealing with a “huge surge” in calls following the publication of the Cloyne report. The Dublin Rape Crisis Centre said yesterday more than 300 calls had been received between their organisation and fellow helplines, Connect, One in Four and Towards Healing in a 15-hour period following the release of the Cloyne Report on Wednesday. Chief executive of the centre Ellen O’Malley-Dunlop said there would “usually be only a smattering of calls over a night, maybe 10”. The HSE has set up a special Cloyne diocese helpline to co-ordinate the different services available to those who have been affected. A spokeswoman said that qualified counsellors were on hand to assess and refer on callers to where they would get the best help.
