Increasing numbers of people are leaving Gloriavale and urgently need support, a charity for leavers says.
The Gloriavale Leavers’ Support Trust says urgent support is needed for dozens of members leaving the reclusive West Coast Christian community.
The trust has launched an emergency welfare appeal to address “the escalating demand” for financial support to help those leaving get back on their feet.
It has launched an appeal video featuring more than 25 ex-Gloriavale children whose families have been helped by the trust in recent months.
