The Catholic Safeguarding Advisory Service (CSAS) has been established to be responsible for driving and supporting improvements in practice. Its primary role is one of co-ordination, advice and support in respect of the wider job of safeguarding children, young people and vulnerable adults. www.csas.uk.net
The National Catholic Safeguarding Commission was formed in July 2008 following the acceptance, by the Bishops Conference of England and Wales (CBCEW) and the Conference of Religious of England and Wales (CoR), of the recommendations in the Cumberlege Commission Report “Safeguarding with Confidence” (July 2007)
The NCSC is ‘expected to demonstrate strong, open and accountable leadership in setting the strategic direction of the Church’s safeguarding policy and in monitoring compliance.’
National Office for Vocation
The National Office for Vocation is an Office of the Roman Catholic Church in England and Wales. The inspiration for the creation of the Office came from the Church document of 1997 entitled ‘New Vocations for a New Europe, (In Verbo Tuo.)’ This offers a vision of the Church as a community of the called whose task is to call others.
