The Church of England’s Past Cases Review 2 (PCR2)
Derby Diocese is currently undertaking a review of past cases of safeguarding concerns to ensure that wherever safeguarding concerns have been raised that the cases have been handled appropriately.
Individual survivors who wish to make representations or people who need to come forward with information or make any disclosures regarding church related abuse are encouraged to make direct contact with the Diocesan Safeguarding Team on 01332 388678.
Alternatively, recognising that this may not feel safe for those with experience of abuse from within the church, a dedicated national helpline – 0800 80 20 20 – operated independently from the church, by the NSPCC is available. Survivors and victims can use the helpline to provide information or to raise concerns regarding abuse within the Church of England context; whether they are reporting issues relating to children, adults or seeking to whistle blow about poor safeguarding practice.
The timescale for responding to PCR2 in the Diocese of Derby is by 31st March 2020.
