How does Safeguarding work in the Diocese? The Bishop is responsible for Safeguarding issues in our Diocese. He delegates responsibility via the Trustees to the Safeguarding Sub-Committee. The Sub-Committee, together with the Bishop, appoint a Safeguarding Co-ordinator, and Safeguarding Officers. The Sub-Committee is accountable to the Bishop and advises him on policy implementation and best practice. The Co-ordinator and Officers report to the Sub-Committee and are accountable to the Bishop via the Sub-Committee.
