Safeguarding Report Published
The Bishop of Chichester, Dr Martin Warner and the Cathedral Chapter have welcomed the publication of a report which reviewed safeguarding practices in Chichester Cathedral and the Diocese.
The CARMI Report, received in 2004, followed an investigation by Sussex Police resulting in the trial and conviction of an offender for child abuse in 2001. The previous Bishop of Chichester, The Rt Rev’d Dr John Hind, commissioned a review after the trial, to identify learning and produce recommendations. This report is an outcome of that review.
The review was designed to replicate the standard of Serious Case Reviews at the time and was invaluable in informing and improving safeguarding practices in the Cathedral and the Diocese.
