There are seven national administrative bodies that work together to support the mission and ministries of the Church. These are called National Church Institutions (NCIs). Each has a role to play in helping the day-to-day work of churches across England. We serve as the Church’s central office, managing finance, education, communications, and more, to keep the Church of England growing. We work with parishes, dioceses (regional offices), schools, other ministries and our partners at a national and international level. The seven National Church Institutions (NCIs): The Archbishops' Council, Lambeth Palace, Bishopthorpe Palace, The Church Commissioners, The Church of England Pensions Board, The National Society for the Promotion of Education and The Church of England Central Services.
In May 2007, the House of Bishops recognised the need for a review of past cases of child abuse. This followed court appearances by several clergy and church officers, charged with sexual offences against children. What became known as the Past Cases Review 2007-2009 (PCR) was considered necessary to ensure that:
The PCR 2007-2009 was a large-scale review of the handling by the Church of child protection cases over many years. It involved a scrutiny of clergy and church officers’ files to identify persons presenting on-going risks to children but whose cases had not been acted upon appropriately.
In 2015 concerns were expressed to the newly appointed National Safeguarding Adviser about how well the PCR had been conducted. Consequently, in consultation with the National Safeguarding Steering Group, an Independent Scrutiny Team (IST) performed an independent assessment of the adequacy of the PCR. Following the review, it was recommended that that an updated version of the PCR, as prescribed by the National Safeguarding Steering Group, should be conducted
The detailed recommendations have been accepted in full by Archbishop’s Council. PCR 2 has been designed to enable dioceses to take a proactive approach to identifying cases of concern and to evaluating safeguarding responses.
