National Safeguarding Steering Group
The National Safeguarding Steering Group met for the first time on 12 October 2016. This group, established by the Archbishops, is a successor to the House of Bishops Safeguarding Monitoring and Reference Group. Its membership consists of a range of representatives from across the Church, to include National Church Institutions, the dioceses and Cathedrals. It is chaired by the Lead Bishop for Safeguarding, the Rt Revd Peter Hancock and staffed by the National Safeguarding Team.
The activities of the NSSG are set out in its Terms of Reference. The membership of the NSSG includes both lay and clerical representation and are appointed by the Archbishops (see list below).
For all safeguarding concerns or to find support please see our dedicated page.
