Welcome to the Cumberlege Commission
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.
