Response to the Review


Baroness Cumberlege

Welcome to the Cumberlege Commission Website

The aim of the Cumberlege Commission was to review the way the Catholic Church in England and Wales responded to Lord Nolan's report: 'A programme for Action' (2001). We looked specifically at how the Church, five years on, implemented the 83 recommendations made to improve the arrangements for safeguarding children and vulnerable adults.

The Commission comprised a number of key figures who brought together a range of expertise in the areas of law, social work, child support and life in the Church.

Please feel welcome to use this site to find out more about the Commission and its work and to read its final report ‘Safeguarding with Confidence’ published on 16th July 2007.
