IICSA – The Independent Inquiry into Childhood Sexual Abuse has concluded all of its hearings into abuse within institutions and released its Final Report on October 20th 2022.
Summarising the findings of the Anglican Church’s investigation, IICSA states:
“In the context of child sexual abuse, the Church’s neglect of the physical, emotional, and spiritual wellbeing of children and young people in favour of protecting its reputation was in conflict with its mission of love and care for the innocent and vulnerable.”
The Church of England released a response to the publication of the final report on 20th October 2022.
