The Conference of Religious (COR) is the association established for the benefit of the major religious superiors of England and Wales and represents religious leaders by uniting them in collaborative initiatives.
I am sure that all of us have been shocked and saddened this last month with the terrorist attacks in Manchester and London, and the tragic loss of life at Grenfell Tower - not to mention the continued conflicts around the world.
With all of this dark news it is important to remember that the vast majority of people just wish to live in peace and safety, and religious groups of all denominations assist in so many ways to alleviate the suffering of those most in need of care.
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.
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.
