Independent Safeguarding Audit
The Social Care Institute for Excellence (SCIE) has been commissioned to undertake an audit of the safeguarding arrangements of each diocese of the Church of England, with the aim of understanding how safeguarding is working.
The audit of the Diocese of Manchester was carried out by Hugh Constant (the lead auditor for this diocese) and Susan Ellery from 23-25 May 2017. The audit process involved an examination of case files and other documents, along with conversations with key individuals and focus groups of parish representatives in the diocese.
This report was written by Hugh Constant with support from Susan Ellery. Quality assurance was provided by Edi Carmi, the senior auditing lead.
