On the 20th October 2022, the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse published its final statutory report. In accordance with the Inquiry’s Terms of Reference, the report sets out the main findings about the extent to which state and non-state institutions failed in their duty of care to protect children from sexual abuse and exploitation and makes recommendations for reform. The report is available on their website in a number of different formats: https://www.iicsa.org.uk/reports-recommendations/publications/inquiry/final-report

The diocese issued a message last weekend following the publication of the final report.  You can download this HERE
