The Church of England has changed significantly in recently years in its safeguarding procedures, and there has a been a highly public process of review of safeguarding practice within each diocese and cathedral.

With issues over governance firmly on cathedrals’ agendas, the Bishop of Truro and Dean of Truro have agreed to hold a robust and extensive review of governance and safeguarding processes and practices within Truro Cathedral to ensure that the cathedral is both clear and efficient in its governance processes, as well as following clear and transparent procedures with regard to safeguarding.

The review will be undertaken by an external team of reviewers headed up by the Rt Revd Joanne Grenfell, the Bishop of Stepney. The reviewers will be visiting the cathedral over the next few weeks, and it is hoped that its initial report will be available in early April.
