Update on Safeguarding in the Anglican Church

By ECA Safeguarding on Thu, 4 Mar, 2021 - 10:29

In November we reported on IICSA’s public inquiry into failures to Safeguard children in the Church of England and Church in Wales, both part of the Anglican Church worldwide.

This week IICSA has published two brief updates on measures taken (or not taken) by those two Churches in response to recommendations made by IICSA.

Triratna’s ECA Safeguarding officer Munisha was called to testify as part of IICSA’s hearings in May 2020.

NBIICSA is not investigating cases of child sexual abuse...

Learning from the Catholic Church

By ECA Safeguarding on Mon, 14 Dec, 2020 - 14:35

Following October’s release of a report on failures in preventing addressing child sexual abuse in the Anglican Church in England and Wales, November saw the publication of a 123-page report on similar failures in the Catholic Church in England and Wales.

NB: ‘Child sexual abuse’ includes the ‘non-contact’ offences of viewing, possessing or producing indecent images of children.

Whenever such reports are published,  we at the ECA’s Safeguarding team look carefully to see what we can learn. We’ll list...

Learning from the Church of England

By Munisha on Fri, 6 Nov, 2020 - 08:57

October saw the publication of a 154-page report on failures to prevent child sexual abuse in the Anglican Church in England and Wales, which the Church itself has described as ‘shocking’.

NB: ‘Child sexual abuse’ includes the ‘non-contact’ offences of viewing, possessing or producing indecent images of children.

Whenever such reports are published, the ECA’s Safeguarding team look carefully to see what we can learn. The report is is extremely long and detailed so we’ll list below some points...

The spirit of Safeguarding

By Munisha on Thu, 5 Nov, 2020 - 12:12

Re-presented here are a couple of earlier interviews on Safeguarding in Triratna, to give more of a sense of the spirit and Dharmic motivation with which the Safeguarding team works.

First, a one-minute video summary by Munisha, from January 2020

Second (below) an 18-minute podcast with Munisha interviewed by Candradasa from way back in February 2017 when Triratna Safeguarding was less than a year old and there was no team yet.

Safeguarding: not just children and "adults who may be at risk"

Safeguarding: not just children and "adults who may be at risk"

By Munisha on Fri, 30 Oct, 2020 - 12:36

It’s a common misconception that Triratna charities only need to protect from harm children and those ‘adults who may be considered at risk’ (or ‘vulnerable adults’, a term no longer used).

However, everyone needs protection from harm. These days trustees are responsible for protecting all their beneficiaries from harm in the course of their charity’s activities. This is a clear requirement of the Charity Commission for England and Wales, the Scottish Charity Regulator and the Australian Charities and Not for Profit Commission, to mention just three...
