Churches in review call

Evesham Editorial 18th Mar, 2020   0

ALL Church of England parishes in Worcestershire and Dudley have been asked to ensure that all safeguarding concerns have been reported to the appropriate authorities as part of a review to ensure that the Church is a safe place for all.

The Past Cases Review is being carried out in all 42 dioceses in England. It will encompass all safeguarding cases – both children and vulnerable adults – from the early 1990s until 2019.

The Bishop of Dudley, Martin Gorick said: β€œIt is essential for us to be confident that any concerns reported to us have been dealt with properly and support put in place for those affected. We want to do everything we can to make our churches the safest places possible where all feel welcome.”

Anyone who wishes to make representations or wishes to make a disclosure regarding church related abuse should contact Hilary Higton, on [email protected].

Alternatively, call 0800 802020 – operated by the NSPCC.
