Notes For Debate:

Historic failings of the Church in handling abuse allegations.

The autonomy of individual Bishops in their Dioceses.

The Nolan Report 2002

Implementing the Nolan Report and creating national standards.

The Cumberlege Review 2007

Creation of independent Safeguarding Commission with condition that Chair will always be a lay person and the majority of members lay.

National criteria. Six years of auditing of practice.

Engaging with victims and survivors. Challenges and opportunities

Looking ahead:

More effective use of technology. E-learning programme, case monitoring. Common curriculum for seminaries.

Continuing with auditing.


Working with others in the field.

Guarding against complacency.
