Independent chair of safeguarding advisory panel appointed.
Martin Richards, former Chief Constable of Sussex Police, has been appointed as the Independent Chair of the Safeguarding Advisory Panel in the Diocese of Chichester.
Bishop Martin said: “I am delighted to welcome Martin Richards as he takes over the helm of advisory panel from Keith Akerman, who stepped down from his post as Chair earlier this year. This will cement the partnership that we have been building with statutory agencies and other voluntary associations committed to the safety of vulnerable people and the wellbeing of everyone as a fundamental characteristic of society."
