Reporting abuse

If you are concerned about the welfare of a child or adult at risk, do not delay in contacting the police, using 999 if a child or adult is believed to be in immediate danger.

It is the policy of the Catholic Church in England and Wales to report all allegations of abuse to statutory authorities, regardless of whether the abuse occurred recently or in the past, or whether the accused person is living or deceased.


If you are in any role within the Catholic Church in England and Wales, you must refer allegations directly to the safeguarding office for your diocese or religious congregation, or directly to the Police.


If you are a member of the public, please refer allegations directly to the police and also to the safeguarding office in your diocese; Mary Rowlands, Safeguarding

Co-ordinator, via e-mail: safeguarding@rcdwxm.org.uk or telephone 01978 262726.



Catholic Safeguarding project

Oversight of project

Good project management builds in good oversight. There is a Short Term Task Group, which meets fortnightly to review progress and give advice as the project develops.

From February 2021, this group will be combined with the Steering Group, which has continued since the Elliott Review.

This new Short Term Task Group is led by Archbishop Malcolm McMahon, and includes Sr Ellen Flynn DC, Fr Martin Ganeri OP, Fr Damian Howard SJ, Bishop Paul Mason, Ms Lyn Murray, Fr John Poland, Bishop Marcus Stock, and Canon Christopher Thomas.

The Project Implementation Team will report to each meeting on progress made and seek guidance where it is needed. Organising oversight in this way ensures that there is good representation from across the Church and that the Project moves in the way that was envisaged in the Elliott Review.
