SAFEGUARDING IN THE CATHOLIC CHURCH IN ENGLAND & WALES

The Catholic Church in England and Wales is currently implementing the recommendations of a Commission led by Baroness Cumberlege in its report "Safeguarding with Confidence" July 2007. This Commission reviewed safeguarding arrangements for children, young people and vulnerable adults, established in 2001 within the Church. The Catholic Bishops Conference of England and Wales and the Conference of Religious accepted these recommendations and the new national structures were established on 1st July 2008.
