Safeguarding - Past Cases Review

As a church we are committed to the support, nurture and protection of all our church community. As part of the Church of England, we have shared commitment to ensuring that our churches are the safest possible spaces in which all God’s people can flourish and grow in holiness, with a special care for the wellbeing of the children, young people and vulnerable adults with whom God has entrusted us.

Past Cases Review: The Past Cases Review 2 (PCR2) has been ordered by the House of Bishops to ensure that our churches and church related activities are as safe as possible for children and vulnerable adults. You can read more here PCR2
