The Future of Church Safeguarding Programme was set up to help Professor Alexis Jay CBE recommend a model for fully independent safeguarding within the Church of England.
Professor Jay has found that the Church needs to take action urgently to restore trust and confidence in its safeguarding by victims, survivors, those wrongly accused and the general public.
Professor Jay introduces the Report Into The Future Of Safeguarding In The Church Of England
The report by Professor Jay recommends that two independent charities are set up – one to deliver operational safeguarding within the Church and the other provide scrutiny of it. Her report also recommends the General Synod passes a Measure requiring the Church to refer all safeguarding matters to these independent bodies and to implement all decisions made by them.
