Past Case Review 2

The House of Bishops wants to ensure that our churches and church-related activities are as safe as possible for children and vulnerable adults. All Dioceses have therefore been asked to extend the review in 2019 to include children, young people and vulnerable adults. This process is called Past Case Review 2 (PCR2).

Diocesan Safeguarding Advisers

The Safeguarding Advisers are qualified and experienced social care practitioners who can provide advice and guidance to parishes and others in the diocese on child and adult protection. They can offer advice, discuss any protection matters and clarify anything in the Diocesan Guidelines. They are always ready to work with you to plan a detailed response to any  protection issue, taking into account all aspects of your particular situation. Please do not hesitate to contact them; they are always very ready to help.

If the document or checklist you are searching for has been removed please refer to the Church of England’s Safeguarding Website under Template and Resources. If you are still unable to find what you are looking for please contact our Safeguarding Administrator who will be happy to help
