INEQE independent audits

The independent safeguarding audit programme for the Church of England was commissioned by the Archbishops’ Council and is overseen by the Church of England’s National Safeguarding Team (NST). Led by the INEQE Safeguarding Group and working to a consistent framework, the audits test the sufficiency of safeguarding arrangements within CofE dioceses and cathedrals. The reports and action plans from individual diocesan and cathedral audits are linked below.

The Social Care Institute for Excellence (SCIE) was previously commissioned to undertake independent safeguarding audits of Church of England dioceses and cathedrals and both Lambeth and Bishopthorpe Palaces. Those reports and action plans have been archived here.
