Section 7 - Serious Incident Reporting to the Charity Commission
7.1 Those communities which are charities (or are overseen by and accountable to a charity) have a duty to report any serious incidents (including safeguarding) to the Charity Commission and should do so in accordance with the House of Bishops’ Serious Incident Reporting Guidance for Religious Communities.
7.2 This is in addition to reporting the safeguarding incident to the DSA.
