Former carers claim child abuse retreat beset by poor training, self-harm and cult allegations
Australia, 7 News
By Rebecca Baillie – November 26, 2013,
Disturbing accusations are being made by former carers and staff about their time at Heal for Life, a foundation that runs retreats for victims of child sexual abuse in four states of Australia.
Several former carers have come forward to complain of inadequate training, routine self-harm, and bizarre allegations of a satanic cult.
Heal for Life was founded by the high-profile former TV and movie casting agent Liz Mullinar, and runs programs for children as young as seven years old, as well as teenagers and adults.
Ms Mullinar, along with her husband Rod Phillips, was driven to set up the foundation by her own childhood ordeal.
As an adult she recovered memories of being abused as a child, and in response she sold up everything, and the Hunter Valley retreat became her mission.
If you or a member of your family need help, please call Lifeline on 13 11 14.
