Bishop Robert Innes has welcomed the publication of the diocese's Safeguarding audit report.

"I welcome this good audit report," he says. "It reflects huge progress in the diocese over the last three years. I thank all those in our chaplaincies and in our diocesan safeguarding team whose hard work is reflected in the auditor's comments and praise. We will, of course be developing a plan to take forward the suggestions made in the report."

Di Smith, the new Independent Chair of Diocesan Safeguarding Advisory Committee agrees#

"The SCIE Audit reflects the significant progress that has been made in the Diocese over the past few years and provides a firm foundation for further development. The findings of the review will be used to shape the next stage of our work to fully embed a culture of safeguarding across the Diocese."
