Abuse thrives in silence and denial, so one of our main aims is to take opportunities, as people of faith – to speak out about this injustice. When we speak up, it may make it easier for victims to tell someone what is happening to them, and it challenges the secrecy that abusers rely on.

But it is not just the speaking that matters – it is the speaking up together. As Muslims and Christians, we believe that our faiths are an inspiration for tackling injustices of every kind. Abuse occurs in every community, and we believe our best chance of preventing it is by working together in partnership.
