Bishop announces safeguarding review
Work is underway across the Diocese of Chester into Past Case Review 2, a new national past case review into the handling of safeguarding files in the Church.
PCR2 has a key focus of listening to survivors who want to come forward and follows on from an earlier review (PCR) in 2007. The work is part of the Church's ongoing scrutiny of its handling of past and current safeguarding cases.
Bishop Keith has written to Incumbents and Retired Clergy asking for information to be shared with an Independent Reviewer who is conducting the review.
Listening to survivors
Individuals who wish to make representations to the PCR2 process, or who need to come forward with information or make any disclosures regarding church-related abuse, are encouraged to make direct contact with the Diocesan Safeguarding Adviser or call the dedicated telephone helpline- 0800 80 20 20 -- operated independently from the Church, by the NSPCC.
