What is your phone number? (Your phone number is only available to the list mentors, and is used for checking purposes only)
Nominate your preferred (one word) nickname. What is a nickname? (Nickname choices are subject to mentor approval prior to joining, in order to avoid duplication and/or triggering references.)
Are you male/female?
Why do you want to join? If you're a survivor, please give us your story in brief. If a supporter, tell us how you feel the group could help you.
Do you have any other
comments/questions/concerns? (Please read Frequently Asked Questions first)
We recognise that you may find it helpful to know a little about the group mentor before joining, so here is a brief biography:
Clare Pascoe is a former mentor of SOAR and now creator and mentor of
SOAROZ. She is a survivor of abuse in the
Anglican Church, having been abused by her parish priest
from the age of 14 to 17 years old. She was a member of SOAR for 10 years and a mentor for 4 years. She runs her own website providing resources for clergy abuse
victims in Australia. She also speaks publicly about clergy
sexual abuse when a survivor's voice is asked for.
