Diocese of Portsmouth


The Diocese of Portsmouth is committed to safeguarding children, young people and adults and creating protective and supportive environments where all people, and especially those who may be vulnerable, are able to worship and pursue their faith journey in safety.

We follow the national legal and procedural framework for safeguarding children and adults, and Church of England policy and practice.

Past Cases Review 2

The Past Cases Review 2 (PCR2) is the most comprehensive safeguarding review our diocese has ever carried out. We asked reviewers who were independent of our diocese and the Church to sift through decades of paperwork to help us to deal appropriately with any outstanding safeguarding concerns from previous years. It was part of a national Church of England project.
