Alleged abuse victims demand apology from Anglican Church Trust

From New Zealand-

Two people who claim they were abused in Anglican-run state care are demanding an apology for what they say are systemic failures.

Rachel Smith* and Ernie Parore were placed in foster homes run by the Anglican Trust for Women and Children during the 1970s and 1980s. The Trust is part of the Anglican Church's social services network.

Both say they suffered physical abuse that caused psychological scars they still wear today. 

The Anglican Trust says it needs to meet with the pair and check their claims before it can apologise to them – but Smith and Parore say the Trust has rebuffed their efforts to talk.
