8 June 2021 Statement re PCR2 (Part Cases Review 2)

'Past Cases Review 2 is a Church of England commissioned independent review of safeguarding cases and practice over the last ten years which has provided some helpful insight and recommendations. The Diocesan and Cathedral Safeguarding Teams are pleased to announce the conclusion of the PCR2 for the Diocese of Truro and Truro Cathedral, which commenced in January 2020.

We would like to thank everyone who has participated in the process. We are grateful for the thoroughness and commitment participants have shown, leading to the Diocese of Truro and Truro Cathedral being one of the very first dioceses and cathedrals to complete the report, well ahead of many who have yet to reach this point.  It is expected that all dioceses will complete their reviews by the end of the year and the national report will be published in the Spring, 2022.

 However, we are enacting the recommendations made within these reports without delay and will ensure our safeguarding practice continues to improve.

We always act on information we receive, and if you have concerns about safeguarding for yourself or someone else there is advice here: https://trurodiocese.org.uk/resources/safeguarding/i-have-worries-what-to-do-who-to-contact '
