In 2007, the Church of England commissioned a Past Cases Review which sought to look at the handling by the church of child protection cases. Following a 2018 review of the effectiveness of the first Past Cases Review, a second review, known as PCR2 was run in all Church of England dioceses between 2019 – 2022. The National Report was published in October 2022.
Please see the executive summary of our local report here:
More information about PCR2 is available from the Church of England website.
If you have any questions about PCR2, or need any advice, please contact our diocesan safeguarding team.
