Confidential Advisor (Elly)
A church is supposed to be a safe place. Although we try our very best to keep it that way, occasions could occur in which you don´t feel quite safe. Think about situations in which you feel verbally mistreated or the subject of inappropriate or unwanted attention.
As a church, we find it very important that you can share your concerns or story so we can stand next to you, support you, give you advice or take further actions. You are not alone.
What does the confidential adviser do?
The confidential adviser will always listen to your story in a confidential way and won’t take any action before discussing with you. If needed, the confidential adviser can ask advice from experts outside our community. Also, the confidential adviser can mediate or in some cases even help you report to the police.
Although you can always share any concerns, the confidential adviser is not a pastoral or social worker. Her first responsibility is to listen and help you take practical steps in confidential situations regarding issues that take place between members of the ICF community so that we can make sure the church is and stays a safe place for everyone.
