Message from Bishop Alan Hopes

The Catholic Diocese of East Anglia is fully committed to safeguarding in the Church in order to ensure that we maintain peaceful, loving and safe Christian communities in which everybody, particularly young and vulnerable members, can confidently participate.

We have therefore eagerly adopted and implemented the policies and procedures of the Catholic Church of England and Wales, which is committed to safeguarding as an integral part of the life and ministry of the Church.

We recognise the personal dignity and rights of all vulnerable people, to whom we have a special responsibility. The Diocese, parishes and individuals in it will: take all appropriate steps to maintain a safe environment for all; practice fully and positively Christ’s Ministry towards children, young people and vulnerable adults; and will respond sensitively and compassionately to their needs in order to help keep them safe from harm.

We will liaise closely with statutory agencies to ensure that we: promptly and properly respond to any allegations of abuse; appropriately support any victims; and hold perpetrators to account.

-Bishop Alan Hopes

Safe Spaces is jointly funded by the Anglican and Catholic Churches. It is run independently by the charity Victim Support, who are one of the leading charities providing specialist support to survivors of abuse in England and Wales.

We work towards a world where people affected by crime or traumatic events get the support they need and the respect they deserve.

Safeguarding and the Catholic Church in England and Wales

The National Catholic Safeguarding Commission, set up in the UK by the Bishops’ Conference and the Conference of Religious provides advice on all safeguarding matters. Visit NCSC website for further information.

All allegations of abuse reported to the Church in England and Wales are immediately passed on to the police. The Church works closely and cooperatively with the statutory authorities as these allegations are investigated. Following this investigation, which follows UK law, the Church conducts its own internal investigation, following Canon Law.

The safeguarding of children, young people and vulnerable adults is at the heart of the Church’s mission. There is no place in the Church, or indeed society, for abuse – a grievous crime which can affect people for their entire lives.

Victims come first. This has not always been the case. The Church deeply regrets all instances of sexual abuse and the abuse of minors and vulnerable adults, and accepts that grave mistakes were made in the past.

Safeguarding and the Diocese of East Anglia


Introduction:

This Diocese has a long history of commitment to the safety of children, young people and vulnerable adults, which was reinforced by following the recommendations of the national review of child protection conducted by Lord Nolan in 2001: “ The Nolan Report – A Programme for Action”. The Nolan recommendations were reviewed and updated in 2007, as Nolan recommended, by a new Commission chaired by Baroness Cumberlege: “ The Cumberlege Commission – Safeguarding with Confidence”.

Following these national developments, the Diocese has developed:

1. a structure of a Safeguarding Commission, supporting staff and volunteers;

2. procedures and systems to implement the policies as set out in these pages.
